For hundreds of years the ocean has been the source of superstition, fear, myth and legend. When we once believed that the world was flat, we are now able to fully map the sea-floor with detail. And yet, more is known about the moon and outer space than our oceans.
The hidden depths are home to secrets waiting to be discovered, like the world’s largest mountain range and giant underwater creatures that have inspired and intrigued for years. Just 5% of the world’s oceans have been explored by humans, which means so much is left to be discovered. But one thing we do know is how deep it is.
Follow us down through the depths with this colourful and informative infographic, as it sheds a light on the underwater world and shows you just how deep the ocean really is. See what is hidden beneath the surface and uncover the mysterious world of the deep.
