The Pacific Ocean is the largest and deepest of Earth’s oceanic division. The Pacific extends from the Arctic Ocean in the North to the Southern Ocean in the south.

To understand how deep the ocean is, a submarine which has successfully captured the world’s first moving images of a giant squid, they dived into the Pacific. The submarine was used to explore the deep sea cliffs off the coast of New Guinea.

Once you pass 1,000 meters, the water is completely devoid of light, and you have reached the deep ocean. Down there, the temperatures plummet to 39 degrees Fahrenheit, and constantly stay near freezing.

Pressures, on the other hand, go from 40 to over 100 times the pressure of Earth’s atmosphere. On the way to the depth of the Pacific, the team found several living fossil species one after another.
