    Awesome. I love the weirdass fish and stuff being found at these depths.

    The see-through-head-fish being a particular recent favourite.

    To be fair some coked-up billionaires do deep ocean stuff *as well*, eg

    "This week a large group of billionaires and CEO’s including Elon Musk, Larry Page, Arianna Huffington and film director James Cameron are among the leaders of the $7 million dollar Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE competition challenging teams from around the world to build advanced deep-sea robots that will pave the way to the deepest ocean exploration ever imagined."

    James Cameron especially:

    James Cameron - Wikipedia

    Cameron became an expert on deep-sea exploration in conjunction with his research and underwater filming for The Abyss (1989) and Titanic (1997).[99] In June 2010, Cameron met in Washington with the EPA to discuss possible solutions to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon (BP) oil spill. Later that week at the All Things Digital Conference, he attracted some notoriety when he stated, "Over the last few weeks I've watched...and been thinking, 'Those morons don't know what they're doing'." Reportedly, Cameron had offered BP help to plug the oil well, but it declined.[99][100][101] The oil spill was eventually stopped using techniques similar to those Cameron recommended.[102]

    On March 7, 2012, Cameron took the Deepsea Challenger submersible to the bottom of the New Britain Trench in a five-mile-deep solo dive.[103] On March 26, 2012, Cameron reached the Challenger Deep, the deepest part of the Mariana Trench.[7] He spent more than three hours exploring the ocean floor before returning to the surface.[104] Cameron is the first person to accomplish the trip solo.[7] He was preceded by unmanned dives in 1995 and 2009 and by Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh, who were the first men to reach the bottom of the Mariana Trench aboard the Bathyscaphe Trieste in 1960.[105] Cameron has made a three-dimensional film of his dive. During his dive to the Challenger Deep, the data he collected resulted in interesting new finds in the field of marine biology, including new species of sea cucumber, squid worm, and giant single-celled amoeba, which are exciting finds due to the harshness of the environment.[106]

    StoneRoad heckling from the back!

    Fascinating stuff ...

    IIRC there were some proposals to dump nuclear rubbish down into deep oceanic trenches (from the American's ?)

    You mean 'right down your trench'? Yes, but you should have told me about it on the alerts thread.

    Glad to see Alan and our optics are still in gainful employment. The deep sea work here wound-up a few years back and I'd wondered where he had got to. :)

    After all, what could possibly go wrong etc
