Ohio businessman plans to go 35,000 feet underwater on historic dive to ocean’s deepest point
He is scheduled to make two dives to the deepest part of the ocean at more than 35,000 feet.
Connor said he plans to explore both the Challenger Deep and the Sirena Deep in the Mariana Trench, located in the Pacific Ocean near Guam, he told the Cincinnati Enquirer, part of the USA TODAY Network.
Connor will dive to the depth of 35,856 feet using the Hadal Exploration System, the world’s only deep exploration facility. I can just imagine all of the new species of sea creatures down that deep the world has never seen before. What a great adventure.
Just to give an example of what the pressures are that deep:
Between 14,8266 and 16,474 pounds per square inch. WOWWWWW!! It had to take a monumental amount of experience, engineering, mathematics and science to develop a sub-marine to go that deep without getting squashed like Bernie Madoff was when he got caught with his shit hooks in the money jar.
One thing for sure; Larry is not lacking in diving experience. He has a total of over 10,000 dive tucked into his diving belt. But, diving over 36,ooo feet, that is uncharted territory.
Good luck to Larry Connor – break a flipper Larry!!
Larry, just a friendly reminder, don’t forget your camera.
