Record: Submarine finds plastic on Pacific Ocean bottom during deepest dive ever

The driver of an American submarine has found plastic at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean while he was busy with the deepest dive ever. According to a BBC Monday report, the vessel had landed about 11 kilometers down the sea.

Trader Victor Vescovo’s world record effort took place last week in the Mariana Trench, a secluded trench that is considered the deepest place in the ocean. The news came out on Monday.

According to the Five-Deep Campaign, the world record-making organization, Vaskovo has come down to 10,928 meters. It is 16 feet deep from the 1960 record.

The total of five dives took place from April 28. The last dive was on May 7. On the first day, the submarine came deep.

Vescovo has a record for a solo dive according to the Five Deeps Expedition, which was 248 minutes the day at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. In total, the vessel was about 15.5 hours for research at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

The team has discovered four new species of crayfish. In addition, other animals deep in the sea are seen. A plastic bag and candy packaging were also found at the bottom.

According to the BBC, before Vescovo, only two people have been in the deepest place of the Pacific Ocean.
