An American explorer successfully made the deepest submarine dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench and discovered a nylon bag and a candy shell.
Victor Vescovo passed a 10,927 m journey to the bottom of the Challenger chasm. The southernmost point of the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean on May 1. This is part of Victor’s plan to explore the deepest places in the five oceans in the world.
Performing many diving trips nearly 11 km to the sea floor, one of which lasted 4 hours, Victor has set the record for the deepest solo diving. Filmed by Discovery Channel in the Five Deeps Expedition series.
The aim of the expedition was to conduct detailed sound-wave mapping at the five deepest points in the oceans. These include the Mariana Trench in the Pacific, the Puerto Rico Trench in the Atlantic, the South Sandwich Trench in the South Atlantic, the Java Trench in the Indian Ocean, and the Molley chasm in the Arctic.
Findings in the Challenger abyss include rocky edges that may contain chemical sediments, supermassive crustaceans and sea cucumbers. Scientists will examine the organisms found to determine the proportion of plastic waste in their bodies.
The divers have done the deepest diving in the Mariana Trench of the Pacific and believe they have found plastic waste. Even at a depth of about 10,912 m under water.
According to the Guardian, this is the deepest dive ever made by a man in a submarine.
Victor Vescovo is a resting naval officer and co-founder of Dallas-based Insight Equity Group. He made a risky discovery journey by diving to a depth of 10,927 meters in the Mariana Trench – the deepest ocean trench on Earth.
The Mariana Track is located in the Pacific Northwest, east of the Mariana Islands and extends close to Japan.
