Hallan desechos plásticos en el lecho marino en la inmersión a mayor profundidad de la historia

May 14, 2019 -- Se hallan desechos plásticos en el lecho marino durante la inmersión
a profundidad récord de un explorador estadounidense.

Victor Vescovo, a retired naval officer, said he made the unsettling discovery as he descended 10,928 metres to a point in the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench – the deepest place on Earth.

His dive went 16 metres lower than the previous deepest descent in the trench, in 1960, by U.S. Navy lieutenant Don Walsh and Swiss engineer Jacques Piccard in a vessel called the bathyscaphe Trieste.

Movie director James Cameron then made a solo plunge half a century later in 2012 in his Deepsea Challenger submarine.

Millions of tonnes of plastic enter the oceans each year, but little is known about where much of it ends up.

The dive forms part of the Five Deeps expedition - an attempt to explore the deepest points in each of the world's five oceans.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
