According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, this was the first-ever crew dive to the deepest point of the Atacama Trench, which is also the deepest part of the southeastern Pacific Ocean, located off the coasts of Chile and Peru.

“Being able to glide along the seafloor for three hours, personally investigating interesting points with someone who has studied the area for much of their career, was just fantastic” Veskovo said.

The goal of the mission, after exploration, was to map the sea floor in the trench, to determine where to place sensors for a new project in the deep ocean.

This was not the first deep dive for Veskovo, the former US Navy captain, who has already descended to Emden Deep, Horizon Deep, Shoal Deep and the deepest point on Earth the Challenger Deep.

He was the first person to reach the bottom of all four of the world’s deepest ocean trenches, when he reached the bottom of the Kermadec Trench in the South Pacific.
