Sub will take humans to deepest point of ocean

Company develops vessel that uses thick common glass instead of acrylic

By Alyssa Danigelis


Conditions at the deepest point of the ocean, 36,000 feet down in the Pacific's Mariana Trench, are so intense that the only manned submersible to make it there was the Trieste bathyscaphe, and that was in 1960.

Enter Triton Submarines CEO Bruce Jones. His team just announced that they've developed new technology for a submersible to take humans 36,000 feet below the ocean's surface to the deepest of the deep.
