Let's get a deep sea thread going
>obligatory ocean depth to scale pic
I'd shit my shorts if I came across a fucking chair on the ocean floor.
Thankfully that makes it less creepy for me, but it still has an unsettling look to it.
It's kinda funny how little we know about the bottem of the ocean.
Is it just not profitable to a company to build something that can withstand such pressure to explore as deep as possible, or just impossible? There has to be something that is strong enough to enclose a crazy strong light and a camera, even transmit back a live/delayed feed like from space? Does anyone know if there's anything in the making for the progression of super deep exploration?
Damn just finished watching it. I hope they can eventually build another one and explore more, maybe even give him a bigger friggen window lol. In that short dive 68 new species were discovered. Imagine if they could stay down there for days and watch in silence? Very creepy, but this proves with the right minds and flowing funds ($35k a day he said?) we will be able to discover more! Oh and one question, do you know who was filming while at the bottom? Did they make two or something for the angles, or just leave a spare camera on the floor for those few shots?
Why has the titanic not been brought up to the surface?
Doing so would be one hell of a money pit and a hell of a labor and time consumer with not enough economic gain for the work to be considered. That's not even considering the safety risks of deep sea salvage. Plus no one cares about the Titanic, it's ancient history that modern people have no emotional connection to.
Because the ocean is smaller, would take less to explore it than space (if humans ever really become so stupid to try to explore the whole space). We know less about the ocean than what we know about space. The ocean is right here on earth, we wouldnt need thousands of years of engineering to make ships to explore it, unlike space. Atlantis, Nessi and other creatures and mythos might be down there
As an offering for good deep sea pasta, here's some pics of huge stuff underwater. Don't know why that's so creepy to me but imagine just swimming around and seeing something huge emerge from the low visibility of the ocean

There's a few to start you out.
anyone got any worth watching docummentaries about the deep sea?
About marianas trench, abyssal plain creatures, all that cool shit
It would take the average adult male (75kg) approximately 362 seconds (6 minutes) to free fall from the height of mt.everest to bottom of Mariana trench (assuming it was drained)
Of all the sounds Julia scares me the most.
It's the most unique, it has a sonic signature of a living creature.
A friendly reminder we have only explored 5% of the oceans surface.......
>A friendly reminder we have only explored 5% of the oceans surface.......
3 years ago was 10% and now is 5%, fuck in a couple of years it will be none. How come they're un-exploring the ocean?
Also Julia's record is fucking gay, it doesn't sound like it is from an animal, and the Apollo 33A5 is fucking bullshit pulled out of someone's ass.
