# Question: Can You Swim In The Mariana Trench?

## Can you swim down to the Titanic?

The trip to Titanic’s resting place takes about 2.5 hours, and a round-trip dive lasts about 8 to 10 hours.

(See pictures of Titanic then and now in National Geographic magazine.) But summer 2012 is the first season since 2005 that Deep Ocean Expeditions has taken people to the Titanic—and it could be the last..

## What would happen if you swam in the Mariana Trench?

The pressure from the water would push in on the person’s body, causing any space that’s filled with air to collapse. (The air would be compressed.) So, the lungs would collapse. At the same time, the pressure from the water would push water into the mouth, filling the lungs back up again with water instead of air.

## Can humans go to the Mariana Trench?

It was the third time humans have dived to the deepest point in the ocean, known as Challenger Deep. The Canadian film-maker James Cameron was the last to visit in 2012 in his submarine, reaching a depth of 35,787ft (10,908 meters).

## How long would it take to swim to the bottom of the Mariana Trench?

about 90 minutes7 miles is a long way down. It’ll take James Cameron about 90 minutes to touch bottom.

## How cold is the water in the Mariana Trench?

At the bottom of the trench the water column above exerts a pressure of 1,086 bars (15,750 psi), more than 1,071 times the standard atmospheric pressure at sea level. At this pressure, the density of water is increased by 4.96%. The temperature at the bottom is 1 to 4 °C (34 to 39 °F).

## At what depth will water crush you?

Human beings can withstand 3 to 4 atmospheres of pressure, or 43.5 to 58 psi. Water weighs 64 pounds per cubic foot, or one atmosphere per 33 feet of depth, and presses in from all sides. The ocean’s pressure can indeed crush you.

## How deep can a human dive before being crushed?

Most recreational scuba divers only dive as deep as 130 feet (40 meters), according to the Professional Association of Diving Instructors.

## Why can’t we go to the bottom of the ocean?

The main reason is deep sea is finite whereas Outer space is infinite. Getting humans down to the deepest areas is exceedingly difficult due to extreme pressures. All that pressure makes deep sea exploration logistically very difficult and extremely dangerous. but with use of science we overcome.

## Has anyone gone to the bottom of the Mariana Trench?

Explorer Reaches Bottom of the Mariana Trench, Breaks Record for Deepest Dive Ever. The submersible reaches the bottom of the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench. Explorer and businessman Victor Vescovo descended 35,853 feet (10,927 meters) into the Pacific Ocean, breaking the record for deepest dive ever.
