November 1, 2018 -- Es ist das erste Mal, dass Menschen die tiefsten Stellen in jedem der fünf Ozeane besuchen werden. Sie tauchen bis zum Meeresboden mit einem Zwei-Mann-Tauchboot, das so konstruiert ist, dass es dem immensen Wasserdruck in 10km Tiefe standhalten kann.

The mission, called “Five Deeps”, will begin in December with a descent to the Puerto Rico Trench, the deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean and a place no human has ever explored, according to the Business Insider website.

Subsequent dives aim to reach the bottom of the South Sandwich Trench in the Southern Ocean, the Java Trench in the Indian Ocean, Challenger Deep in the Pacific and Molloy Deep in the Arctic.

Each dive will use a Triton 36000/2 deep-submergence vehicle, the world’s first and only craft certified to carry humans on dives of 11,000m, according to its manufacturers.

After leaving its support vessel, the submersible will be piloted by explorer and investor Victor Vescovo, along with scientist Alan Jamieson from Newcastle University.

Discovery and Science Channel will capture the entire mission for a project known as “Deep Planet” that will air in 2019.
