So, basically, a less James Cameron-y version of 'The Abyss'.

Another kink in the "we know more about space than we do about the ocean" thought.

Title mentions miles. Then it switches to feet. Then it mentions the team recording square kilometres. I wish we'd all just stick to metric. I dislike having to convert stuff in and out. I realise USA is a major country and uses imperial and as such news will reported in such measurements for them, but it's still a shame. Still, very impressive. Wonder if James Cameron will go for an one-up dive. It takes hours to get down that low, slowly, listening to the creaking of your hull, knowing one poorly tightened bolt could spell the difference between success and death.
