The American adventurer Victor Vescovo, in Marian, a new deep-diving dig record. The 53-year-old American reached the submarine DSV Limiting Factor in the Pacific to a depth of 10'928 meters, such as the expedition team announced. The is 16 meters lower than the old record (10'912 meters), the Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard in 1960. In 2012, the film's Director James Cameron had reached a depth of 10'908 meters.
The recent Expedition of Vescovo seas consisted of a total of five dives in April and may at various Points in the Mariana trench, the deepest point of the world. The record was, therefore, on the first try on 28. April. During the dives the Team at the Texas Investor and former marine, joined the officer on at least three unknown species, including a cancer with long limbs. On the bottom of the Mariana trench, a plastic bag, slip found, also, that the deepest point of the oceans is affected by pollution.
A scientific goal of the Expedition is to survey the sea floor in detail. Average took a Mission between eleven and twelve hours: three and a half hours for the ascent, and about the same time for observations on the sea floor. In the case of a dive, a two-person Crew-exempt device in addition, an unmanned submersible that remained in a previous Expedition is stuck. The maneuver was also a technical novelty.
The special U-boat, with which the record was set, is from the U.S. company Triton Submarines. The 4.6 meters long at a pressure of about 1000 and must hold a vehicle in 11'000 meters Bar. Up to two people in the capsule space. The expedition team is planning more dives in the Tonga trench in the South Pacific, considered the second-deepest point in the world's oceans.
researchers surprised: micro-plastic material reaches the deep sea British scientists have found evidence of plastic particles in the smallest cancers.
in February, British researchers caused a sensation when they were able to demonstrate micro-plastic in very small crabs, which live in the deep sea.
The deep sea was long regarded as the last untouched Region. Microplastics has been demonstrated in organisms up to 2000 meters below sea level in the North Atlantic ocean and in sediments on the sea floor to up to 7000 meters depth.
