The earth is a beautiful planet of life. Viewed from space, it is a beautiful planet with blue brilliance. At the same time, we can also see that most of the earth’s surface is the ocean, with five continents distributed in it.
Only when we really walk out of the earth can we know the true appearance of the earth, and we can also accurately calculate the ratio of the surface area of the ocean to the land. Through measurement, it is found that 71% of the earth’s surface is ocean, while land accounts for only 29%.
Humans and millions of creatures live on land, so is land the most mysterious and terrifying place on earth? Of course not. In fact, as mankind embarks on the road of science and technology, with the help of science and technology, we basically have a comprehensive understanding of the surface of the earth. With the assistance of satellites, we can basically do everything on the surface of the earth. Detected.
But even so, there are still two areas of the earth that we can hardly detect, one is the mystery inside the earth, and the other is the mystery in the deep sea. The earth as a whole is divided into three parts: the crust, the mantle and the core. Only the shallowest crust has an average thickness of 170,000 meters. This is an area that humans’ current scientific and technological strength simply cannot enter.
The understanding of marine humans is only 10%, mainly concentrated in the shallow layer, and the other 90% of the unknown areas are mainly concentrated in the deep sea. So how deep is the ocean? According to the current exploration knowledge, the deepest location is the Mariana Trench, which is about 11,034 meters deep.
The seabed of tens of thousands of meters is a major challenge for human exploration. Although our current diving equipment can go deep here, it is impossible to truly conduct a large-scale effective exploration, so we still know very little about the deep sea.
So what is there in the 10,000-meter deep ocean? Is it scary there? There may be many people who think that there is no life in the deep sea, it is a dark area and a quiet area, and there is nothing that scares us. But in fact, even professional experienced divers entering the deep sea, especially the seabed of tens of thousands of meters, will also feel scared.
Divers are not afraid of the strong water pressure in the depths. In fact, advanced diving equipment can reach 10,000 meters under the sea, so it is basically safe and there will be no equipment accidents. What really scares divers are the mysterious and unknown powerful creatures here.
You heard it right, there are creatures at 10,000 meters under the sea. In fact, there are creatures at different depths of the ocean. Let’s have a simple understanding.
We all know that most of the marine life is concentrated in shallow water, that is, the area above 200 meters. For ordinary people, the depth of diving will not exceed 20 meters. After putting on a professional diving suit, you can dive to about 40 meters. The main reason why we cannot continue to dive is that the water pressure here is already relatively high, preventing us from continuing to dive.
So to go deep into the ocean below 40 meters, we need to use diving equipment. When we reach the position of 200 meters, this is an important watershed. Above 200 meters there is more sunlight and most marine life. And below 200 meters, as the depth increases, the light exposure will become less and less, and the types and numbers of organisms will also continue to decrease.
And above 200 meters, the temperature, salinity and density of the sea water will also change drastically, and the marine environment will become darker and darker until nothing can be seen. Reaching the bottom of the sea 500 meters is the habitat of the largest known marine creature, the blue whale, where we can see this giant creature, which can be called the currently known marine overlord.
Of course, we don’t have to worry about blue whales attacking us. It is a very gentle animal. For ordinary people, we can only see blue whales until they prey on shallow waters. Continue to dive to 1000 meters under the sea. There is no sunlight and there is darkness all around. Of course, this is not a desert of life. There are also many creatures that have evolved their own unique organs.
Dive further and you will come to the area where the sperm whale lives. This is also a powerful creature. It lives at about 1,700 meters under the sea. There is also a powerful squid living here. It and the sperm whale are natural rivals. Once the two Meet, that is the end of your life.
After reaching the bottom of the sea 3000 meters, we came to an important watershed. Scientists found giant squid here. It is also called the king squid. It is a very terrifying deep-sea creature with a body length of more than 13 meters. Among the overlord, there are basically no creatures that are its opponents.
Continue to dive to reach the abyssal water layer that really scares us. It can be called the abyss, which shows that the mysterious and terrifying here often have our unknown creatures lurking. In the past, we can see that the creatures in the deep sea are often very large, and the facts are true. Scientists have discovered unknown huge creatures in the deep sea.
In the summer of 1995, Japan’s advanced deep-sea probe dived into an area below 7,000 meters and encountered a huge monster attack here. This giant monster is about 60 meters long and about 50 meters high. When it approached the detector, it suddenly stretched out two giant claws to tightly hug the detector weighing about 6 tons, and opened its blood basin to bite the detector in an attempt to swallow it.
Fortunately, the deep-sea probe is made of powerful metal. The monster gave up after finding that it could not bite. This also scared the staff inside the probe into a cold sweat. It’s only the area more than 7000 meters under the sea that encountered such terrible monsters, so what more terrible monsters are waiting for us on the 10000 meters under the sea?
In fact, humans still do not have an answer to whether there are powerful creatures at 10,000 meters under the sea. Although our diving equipment has indeed reached 10,000 meters, the water pressure and other environments here are too strong, and the submersible can’t stay for a long time, and can’t perform large-scale motion detection, so I don’t know if there is a seabed at 10,000 meters. The existence of more powerful creatures.
Even so, scientists believe that 10,000 meters under the sea may not be as simple as we thought, and there may be many unknown truths hidden on the earth. We just want to achieve a comprehensive understanding of 10,000 meters under the sea. We also need to work hard to develop technology and create more powerful deep-sea probes. Only then can we completely conquer the ocean.
