An incredible graphic shows us just how deep the ocean really is.
The graphic, created by creative coder Neal Agarwal, takes us on a wild dive to show in real terms – by scrolling and scrolling, and scrolling – just how deep the ocean is.
As you scroll down, you go deeper and deeper into the ocean… ok keep scrolling… yup keep going, further, still further…
Here’s a short list of some of the amazing things you will discover:
- Just how deep elephant seals can dive – it’s so much deeper than you can imagine!
- What a sea angel is.
- The deepest point any human has ever scuba dived to.
- A fish that lives up to 200 years in absolute darkness (and you thought lockdown was driving you stir crazy!)
- A squidworm. Is it a squid or is it a worm?
And most importantly, what’s at the bottom?
The graphic proves that life can survive at unimaginable such depths, and in the harshest environments.
If a fish can live for 200 years in complete darkness, miles under the sea, then you can make it through anything.
