10 Amazing Facts About the Mariana Trench: The Deepest Place of the Ocean

The Mariana Trench is the deepest sea trench in the world, located in the Pacific Ocean, and is crescent-shaped. It is located near the island of Mariana, the western part of the ocean.

Friends, in this article we are going to tell you that there are 10 such facts related to the Mariana Trench, the deepest place on the ocean, which will surprise you.

Facts About the Mariana Trench

 

1. Human tour in the Mariana Trench

Although many people will not trust this fact, it is absolutely true. Humans have also traveled to places like the Mariana Trench. The first human journey to the Mariana Trench occurred in 1960 when two men who were scientists Jacques Piccard and US Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh boarded a deep boat in the depths of the Mariana Trench.

Several years later, a highly successful movie director decided to go to the surface of the Mariana Trench and that was no one else but James Cameron, James Cameron had decided to undertake this journey alone. James Cameron was also successful in making this trip. Due to all this, he became very famous all over the world.

 

2. Giant creatures present here

One of the biggest and unresolved mysteries of the Mariana Trench is the claim to have giant creatures present here. The Mariana Trench is not only a mysterious place, but many people also believe that some special terrible and giant animals live here. If you are interested in science, then the organism you are thinking of is the Megalodon shark. It was the world’s largest shark which is now extinct,

but many researchers believe that the giant Megalodon is still present in these depths. Although many more claims have been found, no solid evidence has been found to date. On the other hand, these kinds of mysterious things are coming out from the Mariana Trench, It seems that many mysterious creatures are hidden in these depths and some such giant creatures may also exist which nobody would have imagined.

 

3. The rarest element present here.

Let me tell you that volcano is also present in Mariana Trench. If there is nothing more special here because the Mariana Trench has thousands of volcanoes. One of these is the “Daikoku volcano” which is at a depth of about 1360 feet in the sea. Daikoku volcano is considered one of the rarest places on Earth. Now, this is because here is the rarest site in the world. The “Daikoku volcano” contains a lake of pure sulfur.

You can hardly guess how rare this place is. Such a rare place exists in addition to this place on a moon of Jupiter which is the second place after Earth where such a lake exists.

 

4. It is the largest marine reserve in the world.

The Mariana Trench is the world’s largest marine reserve. In such conditions, many creatures have been living here and some are older than dinosaurs. Surprisingly, in a place where very little oxygen is present and where the temperature and pressure can end anyone’s life in a moment. After all, how have these creatures lived under these conditions for so long

If it could be discovered by scientists and the cause is found out, it With which it has been possible to live. So scientists will also be able to understand how organisms in space can survive without oxygen and different conditions.

 

5. More people have gone to the moon than the Mariana Trench.

Friends, we all know that the Mariana Trench is a very mysterious place that researchers have rarely been able to explore. There are many places and creatures still unknown in the Mariana Trench, which still hide in the ocean depths from the eyes of the world.

You can guess this by the fact that to date so few people have gone to the Mariana Trench that more people have gone to the moon than that. Yes, let me tell you that till today in the Mariana Trench. Only three people have been able to go. Now, this is also because it is very difficult to carry anything between the heavy pressure and temperature here. Let me tell you that this trench is so deep that if Mount Everest is kept inside it, then its peak will remain within a few miles in the water.

 

6. Many bridges exist in the Mariana Trench.

The Mariana Trench has many long bridges beyond your imagination. Now you must also be wondering how bridges can exist here, so tell us, in fact, this is not a structure composed by humans, but due to the changes in natural tectonic plates. Scientists at the University of New Hampshire have found several large bridges in the Mariana Trench. According to scientists, these bridges in the Mariana Trench can be up to 6600 feet high and are up to 47 miles long.

Scientists, combining their research, have prepared a map of the Mariana Trench showing these bridges. For this, scientists have used Multibeam Echosounder and they got such interesting information which surprised everyone.

 

7. There is no sand on the surface here.

Friend, whenever it comes to the sea surface, we all believe that sand exists on the surface of the sea. This is true under normal circumstances, but if we talk about the deepest place of the sea, then the situation is completely different. The surface here is not covered at all with sand. You can think of it as a cover of dad and decameter.

You cannot even imagine the temperature and the heavy pressure here. Some such views will be seen. Now you will find some such amazing things in the most mysterious and deep place of the sea.

 

8. Mariana Trench Discovery

The Mariana Trench is one of the most famous places in the world. But do you know when it was discovered? It was first seen in 1875 when it was revealed during the global circumnavigation. Sounding equipment was used on the HMS Challenger to accurately locate the Mariana Trench. When it was first discovered, it was named Mariana Trench after the nearby Mariana Islands.

The discovery of the Mariana Trench was a major revolution in discovering the mysteries of the sea. A special reason behind the famous Mariana Trench is that 4700 new species were found at such a high temperature and pressure, which surprised everyone because it could not even be predicted to be any organism. Moreover, its depth was 11034 meters due to which it became the deepest place in the world.

 

9. Place of Ultimate temperature

Mariana Trench. Seeing the depth of the sea, the depth of which most people consider it as a place of cold temperature, but you are probably right because the sun’s rays reach here very rarely, so the temperature here is around 1 to 4 degrees Celsius.

Hydrothermal vents are present in the Mariana Trench, due to which the temperature here reaches its peak, due to which the temperature here can rise up to 371 degrees Celsius. Due to this temperature, the water coming out releases many minerals which are present in the depths there. But surprisingly it is due to this temperature that the water does not boil and it happens due to the pressure present here.

 

10. Heavy pressure location

Now as you have known in the past that the Mariana Trench is also a very hot place, but due to heavy pressure, there is no water boiling and the temperature is balanced. Water pressure is much higher at such a deep place. According to scientists, it produces a pressure of 15750 psi, which is 1071 times higher than normal atmospheric pressure.

Now you too must be thinking how much pressure is there. So, friends, you can guess from this that if you raise a hundred elephants on your head, then you will probably feel the same pressure. Now under such pressure, the density of water also increases by 5%
