WISSENSCHAFT: Five Deeps Expedition infographic

Tauchboot besucht die tiefsten Stellen aller Ozeane der Welt

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.




21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
