    Mariana trench

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariana_Trench

    The deepest part of the world's oceans. What do you guys think is down there? Do you think we will ever have the technology to go into the Trench and explore it? Is there any new creatures that you think is down there that we haven't discovered?
    Post your opinions here.

    Could we go down there? Maybe in a few decades we will be able to make manned craft that can take people down to the bottom of the trench, but letting people swim down there would be insane. The Physics behind that are impossible. It might be possible to make a cloth that can withstand that kind of pressure, but it would still crush your body even if the cloth survived, no matter how advanced it is.

    What do I think is down there?
    I haven't a clue, though anything that lives that deep must be either gigantic or tiny. Tiny, to escape extreme pressure, gigantic, to have enough force to hold the pressure of. Though I could be wrong, I'm not a master of Physics.

    It is possible that we could explore it. Science advances pretty quick, I see why not. What lives down there? I don't know, nobody knows. We can only make assumptions. If there is something living down there, it could be bacteria to withstand the heavy water pressure and the extreme heat. Although I could be wrong. If it is something visible within a human eye (cat size maybe) I assume it would look unusual. Why do I think this? Recently discovered deep see creatures look very unusual. For example the Deep angler fish etc. So I don't see why not the creatures in a deeper part of the ocean would look more unusual.

    If we can make technology durable enough to sustain the massive pressure down there, then yes.

    What do I think is down there? I'm not sure, but I am sure that the results will probably be very disappointing.

    Disappointing? I was thinking more along the lines of frightening. All the deep sea fish we have come across look pretty fucking insane, due to their crazy methods of surviving such an inhospitable place.

    Just some quick things I could find, as a reference for those who haven't seen the general appearance of deepsea fish.

    I'm a bit surprised we have developed the technology to reach space but not the depths of the oceans.

    That's because there is no pressure in space. Space is literally a vacuum, while the depths of the ocean has at least five times the atmospheric pressure of sea level

    I do realize that. But the way I've been thinking is, we have yet to completely explore the Earth.

    It's the buttcrack of the earth. I'd say there's some pretty shitty animals down there.

    We know more about the surface of the moon, than about the deepest parts of our oceans. Also in New Guinea just recently they found a new species of giant rat, like the size of a cat, a new species of tree kangaroo, a new species of bat, about 20-30 new species of insect, new species of crab and more.

    We definately have not explored all of Earth.
