DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery Channel's press release, October 2018) After three years of intensive efforts from some of the world's leading oceanographers, submarine engineers, and scientists, the Five Deeps Expedition is launching as the first global ocean journey to send a manned submersible vessel farther and deeper than any in history. An expedition of this size and scope has never before been attempted. Discovery and Science Channel will capture the entire mission for a major multi-platform event, DEEP PLANET (wt) that will air in 2019. This is a journey like no other, diving to the deepest points below the surface of the earth's five oceans to places never-before-seen by the human eye. "One thing that thirty years of Shark Week has taught us is that there are always more places to explore," said Nancy Daniels, Chief Brand Officer, Discovery and Factual. "No one has spent more time in the ocean than Discovery, making us uniquely suited to bring this once in a lifetime expedition to audiences around the world." A collaboration between investor and explorer Victor Vescovo of Caladan Oceanic, Triton Submarines, and EYOS Expeditions, the Five Deeps Expedition has assembled an experienced team capable of delivering the expedition's mission. A two-person deep sea research submersible has been designed specifically for this endeavor, and it will bring its stories of the voyage to the world. The vessel, named the Limiting Factor, is the first commercially certified full ocean depth submersible. It will be transported and deployed into the ocean depths by the Pressure Drop, a ship retrofitted exclusively for the expedition.
