Sire Richard Branson has announced his latest venture, called Virgin Oceanic, which is a new submarine that will be used to explore the oceans depths, and Branson intends to go deeper than anyone has done before.
According to Richard Branson, the deepest anyone has gone is about 18,000 feet, and some parts of the ocean are actually up to 36,000 which he intends to explore with his new underwater craft, Virgin Oceanic.
Each dive will be the world’s first solo dive to the bottom of the five deepest trenches in the world. So there’s 5 just to start with! We will discover a whole new world. A world full of undiscovered species and for those who dream, a world where Spanish galleons have lain unplundered for centuries!
Richard Branson also said that one day he hopes to offer deep sea dives to the general public, in a similar way he plans to offer space travel with Virgin Galactic.
Have a look at the video below of this new underwater craft from Virgin.
It certainly will be interesting to see what they discover down there, and who knows one day we may be able to travel to the bottom of the sea.
