It has only been lowered to 10984 meters and it is believed that it can measure much more, here we tell you about the unusual case of ” Las Marianas ” the deepest place in the ocean.
It is very common to hear that the Universe is known more than the depth of our Oceans. Did you know that the deepest place on earth is deeper, than the altitude of Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world? In other words, if we took Mount Everest and took it to the Mariana Trench and turned it upside down, the summit would not even touch or be close to the ground.
Las Marianas, the deepest place in the ocean
The Mariana Trench is known as the deepest place in the Ocean. It is located in the Pacific Ocean 200 km from the Mariana Island, it is 2550 km long, 69 km wide, and has a depth of up to 10,984 meters, although it is believed that it can measure much more. Not surprising?
The first sounding that was made, was carried out in the year 1875, from that moment the bottom of the Marianas received the name of the Abyss of Challenger. The way to measure the depth of the pit was by tying a lead tip with a rope, throwing it into the abyss, and calculating the length of the rope from the surface to the ground.
In 1960, the first expedition was made. Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh, descended and lasted five hours on board the submarine, but when they reached 9,000 meters one of the windows cracked from the pressure, but they decided to continue. It was 20 minutes that they were at 10,911 meters, where they thought they saw a fish, although scientists affirm that it is not possible that there is marine life at such depths
Remember the famous director James Cameron, famous for directing movies like: Terminator, Avatar and Titanic? Well, he went down to the bottom of the Marianas in 2012, in the small DeepSea Challenger Submarine, with which he managed to reach a depth of 10,898 meters and spent three hours.
The seabed is still a mystery to humans, due to the high pressure it faces, but it is expected that in the future with even more advanced technology, it will be able to descend again and find out what mysteries it hides in its depths.
