Lifestyle Desk American explorer Victor Vescovo first entered the depth of 11 kilometers of the sea, and he found plastic garbage there too. They lasted for about four hours in the Mariana Trench of the Pacific Ocean. It is the deepest place in the world. In addition to the sea creatures, Victor finds plastic bags and empty sacks of sweets.
Victor’s team came down five times on the lower surface of the Mariana Trench via submarine and motor ship. The team deployed robotic landers to locate remote areas. Victor said that the whole team was excited during the campaign. We achieved success in the deep and harsh ocean between the strong waves. This is a good example of the use of high marine techniques.
For the first time in 1960, US Navy Lieutenant Dawn Walsh and Switzerland’s engineer Jacques Piccard reached the lower surface of the Mariana Trench. However, they could reach only about 10 km. Walsh congratulated Victor on success.
A year ago China’s submarine also reached the depth of 4027 meters in the sea for the first time. America has been exporting its plastic garbage at cheap prices to China for many decades. Canada dumps its garbage to Manila’s port of Philippines. The rich countries produce large amounts of plastic waste, but they can not recycle.
The world produces 300 million tonnes of plastic waste annually. According to the researchers, 100 million tonnes of plastic waste is found in the oceans around the world. Out of this 90% of the garbage reaches the sea through just ten rivers. It has many rivers in Asia. The Ganga and the Indus coming from India are also included in this.
