A Fascinating 3D Animation of Ocean Depths

The world ocean is deep, more profound in some places than Mount Everest is tall. Below is incredible 3D animation of traveling from the shallows of the shoreline to the deepest sections of the ocean, with specific comparisons to things like the height of Mount Everest, Eiffel Tower, and Mount Everest along the trail. 

Deep-sea research began 150 years ago when the British survey ship Challenger set sail from Portsmouth with 181 (292 kilometers) rope. 

Conclusions from this four-year voyage totaled almost 30,000 pages when issued in a report. But the Challenger's most notable legacy may be its exploration of the Mariana Trench. The ship registered a sounding of 4,475 fathoms (26,850 feet or 8184 meters) in a southern part of the trench after called Challenger Deep, and now known as the deepest point of the ocean on our planet. The most up-to-date soundings using sonar have measured the depth of the trench at around 35,768 to 36,037 feet or 10,902 to 1984 meters. It is roughly 7 miles or 11 kilometers.

Mariana Trench is so deep that if Everest were engulfed into its depths, the mountain's top would still be nearly a mile and a half underwater or about two kilometers. 

The deepest place in ocean

In 1960, a led crew of two plunged into the Challenger trench. Dozens of remotely manipulated vehicles have investigated its depths since. Still, it wouldn't be until 2012 that another human-made the 2.5-hour descent when James Cameron, movies The Abyss and Avatar director, funded his exploration. Then in 2019, explorer Victor Vescoso made the trip, setting the Guinness world record for deepest human-piloted submarine dive when he ещгсрув the Eastern Pool, a depression within Mariana Trench. Last year, he surpassed the record with his mission expert John Rost, examining the Eastern Pool for over four hours.

Nowadays, the total number of people who have visited Challenger Deep is five.

Moose population in North America

The moose ( Alces alces ) is the largest member of the deer family, characterized by its massive size, long legs, and distinctive broad, palmate antlers found in males. They have a dark brown or black coat and a humped shoulder. Moose are primarily found in the boreal and mixed deciduous forests of North America, Europe, and Asia. They are solitary animals, often found near bodies of water, and are herbivores that feed on leaves, bark, twigs, and aquatic vegetation. Despite their size, moose are strong swimmers and can run up to 35 miles per hour. The moose population in North America is shrinking swiftly. This decrease has been correlated to the opening of roadways and landscapes into this animal's north range.   In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada and Alaska, the northern part of New England and New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale.    In 2014-2015, the North American moo

Map of Fox Species Distribution

Foxes are small to medium-sized members of the Canidae family, which also includes wolves, dogs, and other related animals. There are about 37 species of foxes distributed around the world, and they inhabit a wide range of environments, from forests and grasslands to deserts and urban areas. Below is the map of fox species distribution  created by Reddit user isaacSW Here are some of the most well-known fox species and their distribution: Red Fox ( Vulpes vulpes ): The red fox is one of the most widely distributed fox species and is found in North America, Europe, Asia, and parts of North Africa. They are adaptable and can live in a variety of habitats, including forests, grasslands, and urban areas. Arctic Fox ( Vulpes lagopus ): The Arctic fox is found in the Arctic regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. They have adaptations that help them survive in cold climates, such as a thick coat that changes color with the seasons. Gray Fox ( Urocyon cinereoargenteus ): The gray fox
