Vescovo's team discovered four potentially new species of prawn-like crustaceans called amphipods, a spoon worm at 7,000 meters and a pink snailfish at 8,000 meters. She did confirm that whatever Vescovo found at the bottom of the ocean floor is "something that resembled man made waste" but could not say whether it was a plastic bag.
Details of the voyage, made May 1, were released for the first time on Monday. The explorer is part of the Five Deeps Expedition, which aims to reach the bottom of every ocean on the planet.
Lahey said the Limiting Factor "represents a quantum leap in the capabilities of a manned submersible and everyone at Triton is immensely proud to have had the privilege and opportunity to create such a remarkable craft, which was only possible by the unwavering support and vision of Victor Vescovo". "I think it is a wonderful part of human nature that makes us want to push ourselves to the limits, which has helped propel us as a species to where we are now".
Unfortunately, Vescovo also spotted a plastic bag and candy wrappers during his four-hour dive in the Limiting Factor submersible, as previously reported by CNN.
In the May/June issue of Hydro International we'll publish an article about the Five Deeps Expedition. The Mariana Trench is in the Pacific Ocean, east of the Philippines and south of Japan. Once he finishes his last dive in August, he will be the only person to ever summit the highest mountain on each continent and go to the lowest point of each ocean.
The Mariana trench is deep enough to completely submerge Mount Everest.
"Honestly, toward the end, I simply turned the thrusters off, leaned back in the cockpit and enjoyed a tuna fish sandwich while I very slowly drifted just above the bottom of the deepest place on Earth, enjoying the view and appreciating what the team had done technically", Vescovo said.
Bumgarner gives Giants strategic no-trade list
Over his 11-year career, Bumgarner has compiled a 112-87 record with a 3.06 ERA, four All-Star nods, and a World Series MVP award. Madison Bumgarner has submitted an eight-team no-trade list to the San Francisco Giants , according to a report.
According to CBS, the first deep dive into the Mariana Trench was in 1960, when US Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh and Swiss engineer Jacques Piccard ventured into the deep abyss of the Pacific Ocean.
Scientists plan to test the newly-discovered creatures to see if they contain microplastics.
A documentary series that chronicles his expedition will air on Discovery Channel later this year.
Vescovo also made progress toward his larger goal. On May 3, the Limiting Factor submersible freed and recovered a Five Deeps Expedition scientific lander that had got stuck at the bottom of Challenger Deep in a previous dive.
Actor Tim Conway dead at 85
Conway also had a modest but steady movie career, appearing in such films as " The Apple Dumpling Gang " (1975), "The Shaggy D.A". Conway was born on December 15, 1933, just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, in nearby Willoughby, Illinois.
"It's nearly indescribable how excited all of us are about achieving what we just did", Vescovo said.
Star Wars movie in 2022 will come from Game Of Thrones creators
If you're not happy with the way " Game of Thrones " is ending and you're a " Star Wars " fan, well, step away from the computer. Disney said that Weiss and Benioff's films would be separate from the classic Skywalker Saga and Rian Johnson's new trilogy.
