Surprises from exploring the Challenger Deep

Victor Vescovo is the first person to ever explore the deepest points in all five of the world’s oceans. This is truly groundbreaking—more people have walked on the surface of the moon than have been to the bottom of even a single ocean. Victor’s incredible talks reveal the challenges of designing and building the most advanced deep-diving submersible in history and share never-before-seen images from the ocean floor. We asked Victor what were the biggest surprises from his exploration of the Challenger Deep–the deepest known point in the Earth's seabed hydrosphere. This is what he told us.
