Are you curious about the deepest dive ever made? An American explorer recently achieved a remarkable feat by plunging to a depth of 332.35 m (1,090 ft), breaking the record for the deepest dive in history. This dive was part of the Five Deeps expedition, an ambitious attempt to explore the deepest points of each of the world's five oceans. The dive was made using a 4.6 m long and 3.7 m high submersible called DSV Limiting Factor. This titanium pressure helmet, which is 9 cm thick and can fit two people, allowed for dives to be done alone or as a couple.
The submersible was built by Triton Submarines with the aim of having a boat that could perform repeated dives anywhere in the ocean. The first dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench took place in 1960 by United States Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh and Swiss engineer Jacques Piccard on a boat called the Trieste bathyscafo. More than 50 years later, Canadian explorer and filmmaker James Cameron made his first solo dive and reached a depth of 35,787 feet (10,908 m). However, it was Victor Vescovo who recently broke this record with his descent to 35,853 feet (10,927 meters).
Ahmed, an Egyptian, plunged into South Sinai with a team of 24 instructors, divers and medical and communication support. Vescovo's dive was part of an ongoing mission to explore the depths of each of the world's five oceans. If you're wondering how deep a human can dive, remember that divers have died trying to break the record for deep diving. It is important to be aware of the risks associated with deep sea diving and to take all necessary safety precautions before attempting such a dive. The world's deepest open circuit dive is 332.35 m (1,090 ft). The explorer who achieved this feat submitted his original request of intent to Guinness World Records more than a year before diving.
This remarkable achievement is a testament to human ingenuity and perseverance.
