James Cameron Island: What Is The Mariana Trench?

Decent Essays
A huge challenge for James Cameron was to reach the deepest part of the Mariana Trench. But what is the Mariana Trench? The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the ocean. It reaches about 10,902 meters below the surface. But what lives in the deepest part of the ocean? Well what I found in my research is that there are quite a few different species that can survive in this much pressure.
To find all these questions James Cameron sent a search party to see what life is found in the Mariana Trench. The trench is located near the island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean. To figure this out they had to first figure out how to get there because the pressure is so high that the have to make a place where they are protected from the high amount

The subs have to withstand the high pressure that would crush a human like a tin can. It would set of like a stick of dynamite. One landers ship imploded and they could hear the explosion from the surface thankfully the lander survived. They brought up some of the new species to the surface to take some tests on them but unfortunately none of the new species survived the long trip back to the surface.
Why do people care? I think people care because they want to know what life can survive under the high amount of pressures because humans can’t. And people want to know more about the huge ocean and what new life we can discover and learn more about. This would help scientists understand many more types of life and what types of pressures they can stand. Then eventually they can create a type of suit that we can just travel in without a submarine. I think people also care so we can learn just a little bit more about the huge ocean.
Thank you for reading my report on the Mariana Trench. I hope this inspires you to learn more about our huge ocean. And maybe you will eventually find a new species of fish or plant. I hope this gave you a good summary of the Mariana Trench and what lives in
