Mariana Trench: Record-breaking journey to the bottom of the ocean - BBC News

  • Published: 14 May 2019
  • An American explorer has descended nearly 11km (seven miles) to the deepest place in the ocean - the Mariana Trench in the Pacific.

    Victor Vescovo spent four hours exploring the bottom of the trench with the risk of his submersible imploding if anything were to go wrong.

    The dive was later verified to be 10,972m and Victor became the first person to reach the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean.

                  Plastic waste is one of many types of wastes that take too long to decompose. Normally, plastic items can take up to 1,000 years to decompose in landfills. Even plastic bags we use in our everyday life take anywhere from 10 to 1,000 years to decompose, and plastic bottles can take 450 years or more.
