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.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
