Researchers from China and New Zealand made an expedition to the deepest part of the ocean. The second crewed dive to explore the Scholl Hole in the Kermadec Trench is of great importance for scientific research. The Scholl Hole is the deepest known point of the Kermadec Trench, located more than 1.000 km off New Zealand's northeast. The deepest point of the Scholl Hole, which is more than 1.000 km long, is deeper than the height of Mount Everest.
Led the expedition by New Zealand's National Institute for Aquatic and Atmospheric Research. Kareen Schnabel made submarine captains Deng Yuqing and Yuan Xin from the Deep Sea Science and Engineering Institute (IDSSE) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The crew, which descended to the deepest region of the ocean with the deep-sea manned submarine called “Fendouzhe,” says the trip is a unique experience. During the expedition, Schnabel and Deng became the first women to descend into the deepest point of the Scholl Hole in the Kermadec Pit. The study dive was implemented as part of a two-month scientific voyage aboard IDSSE's research vessel Tansuoyihao.
