Question: Why Can’T We Go To The Bottom Of The Ocean?

Why can’t humans survive deep down in the ocean?

The deep sea is a very difficult place to live.

There is no light, it’s cold, there’s not much oxygen and little food – and, as you rightly point out, the creatures that live there have to deal with the enormous pressure of the water above..

At what depth will water crush you?

At about 10–12 meters (33–40 feet) of depth, pressure of water column above you (1 extra atmosphere of pressure per 10 meters) will compress air spaces in your body by half, with lungs compressing the most by the absolute volume.

What depth of water will crush a human?

Human bone crushes at about 11159 kg per square inch. This means we’d have to dive to about 35.5 km depth before bone crushes. This is three times as deep as the deepest point in our ocean.

What happens if you go to the bottom of the ocean?

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.

Will we ever explore the bottom of the ocean?

In 2020, we’re still just getting to know the depths of our home planet. More than 80% of the bottom of the sea is still unmapped and unexplored, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). “We’ve done a pretty good job mapping the surface of the earth and what’s underground.
