How deep is an ocean really? What do you think? It’s a lot deeper than what you have always thought of. One needs to see to believe it.
This animated video showing how deep an ocean could be is surely going to take your breath away. The video via Buzzfeed has got over 13 million views since it was published in January. It is probably the first time that the deepest point of an ocean is illustrated so beautifully. It is simple yet interesting as hell.
Viewers have been awed by the illustration and all the more by the real facts. “Wow. Can’t even believe it. I am fear of deep place , but after seeing this I wanted to go to the end of it. This is so amazing” writes one of the viewers. “So we’ve reached the moon. But still not the depth of the ocean! Wow, I’ve never thought about that really. What could be inside there! This is exciting,” writes another. “The things that you will see in the ocean will boggle your mind,” add another viewer and the list goes on.
The last venture to the Mariana Trench, which is the deepest part of the world’s oceans, was in 2012 by James Cameron. He descended almost 10898 miles down the ocean, which is more than a mile deeper than the height of Mt. Everest ( 8850 miles). However, that was not the last point of the ocean.
Prior to James Cameron, the last venture was made almost 50 decades ago in 1960 by Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard. They went deeper than Cameron, almost 10994 miles but guess what? That’s not the deepest point. Considering recreational activities into the world’s oceans, the maximum scuba-divers travel is 40 miles deep and the bottom of the Mariana Trench is 11034 miles.
So, that it something which one really cannot put into figures. Watch this super informative video yourself.
