 To the deepest part of the earth! Record of private submersible built by private capital

Private capital to build Chinas first 10000 meter deep abyss mother ship: toward the earths deepest point

In December 2016, a large ship called Zhang Jian sailed out of Shanghai. All the way to the wind and waves, heading for the deepest sea on earth - Mariana Trench. The members of the expedition were full of excitement and anxiety. Excited, they will complete an unprecedented initiative; disturbed, deep in the ocean, no one knows what will happen. The head of the science team is Cui Weicheng. In the whole team, only he has ever dived below 7000 meters.

Under the command, the scientific research group put an unmanned submersible into the sea.

The unmanned submersible has reached a record of 10895 meters, and there is still life in such a deep area. If people go to this depth without protection, they will be crushed and burst.

Unmanned submersible down to 10895 meters

Cui Weicheng, Chief Designer of the Abyss Limit Challenge Project: Animals under 10895 meters are not gathered together. Many animals hide under the mud. We put the bait nearby, and when the underground animals smell it, a lot of them will come out of the ground.

Later, Cui Weicheng put three landers on the seabed to continue his work. A few hours later, water samples, mud and fish and shrimp were collected, which was an unprecedented collection. For the first time in hundreds of millions of years, these things have met with human beings, but regrettably, the deep-sea fish and shrimp collected soon died because of the great difference in air pressure. This problem has not been solved internationally.

This dive into the Mariana Trench was an exploratory experiment by Cui Weicheng, and several more such experiments are needed.

More than 70% of the earths human life is covered by the ocean. With the progress of science and technology, human beings have focused their attention on the area below 6500 meters of the ocean, which is scientifically called the abyss area. Cui Weichengs goal is to send his manned submersible to the abyss by 2020. In order to achieve this goal, he resigned as deputy director of 702 China Shipping Heavy Industries, intending to independently develop a 10,000-meter manned deep submersible.

As a world-renowned scientist, Cui Weichengs life is simply unimaginable. He wears cheap clothes for tens of yuan and only needs a few buns and bowls of porridge to eat. He doesnt have his own car and usually travels by bus and subway. He lives in an old house in the 1990s, only 60 square meters, but he never plans to change his new house.

Cui Weicheng, Chief Designer of the Abyss Limit Challenge Project: I feel very comfortable. We can take a bath and live in a good condition. So I have been instilling the idea with my family. We only have what we need in our life.

At present, tackling key technologies is not a problem for Cui Weicheng. The biggest problem is capital. For this reason, Cui Weicheng often goes out to give speeches, and also participates in various TV programs to promote his plan, hoping to get effective help. On different occasions, many people would ask him the same question: Will it be possible to successfully descend to the bottom of the Mariana Trench in 2020? Cui Weicheng is still not able to answer this question for the time being. A half-hour observation as a top scientist, Cui Weichengs material life is too simple to be any more simple, but his spiritual life is rich and happy beyond ordinary peoples imagination. Although there are still many difficulties in realizing the goal of Mariana Trench Exploration in 2020 due to lack of funds, Cui Weicheng did not hesitate to move forward, step by step, and steadfastly towards his dream. We hope that the Chinese dream of the 10000 meters deep sea can be realized at an early date. The source of this article: CCTVs responsible editor: Zhang Zutao _NT5054
