Hello Carter & flock
For my BOTM run I am going to be using my Star Trek Enterprise shuttlecraft, the Galileo, to take us on far flung adventures. From the very bottom of Earth’s deepest seas to the far reaches of the Universe.

Step into the shuttle and strap in every birdie. Here we go down to The Mariana Trench the deepest spot on earth’s seas. 6.831 miles (36,069 ft) deep at the Challenger Deep.

In 1960 the bathyscaphe Trieste with U.S. Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard, (I think he is Captain Piccards grand father. LOL), on board, made the 4 hours and 47 minutes trip down there only to stay for 20 minutes. Sometime during the descent they lost the ability to communicate with their support ships. The two men inside did not see much due to all the sediment they stirred up when they reached the bottom. They did see a sole or flounder fish about 30 cm (1 ft) long, and a shrimp

While on the bottom, Piccard and Walsh unexpectedly regained the ability to communicate with the surface ship, USS Wandank (ATA-204), using a sonar/hydrophone voice communications system. At a speed of almost a mile per second (about five times the speed of sound in air), it took about seven seconds for a voice message to travel from the craft to the surface ship and another seven seconds for answers to return.

The upper blimp looking section was filled with regular high-octane automotive gasoline. Gas floats on water so the “blimp” wanted to float. There were 2 containers, one on each end of the “blimp”, filled with led pellets to make it sink. A magnetic door was turned off when they were ready to ascend.
It took them 3 hours, 15 minutes to regain the surface after releasing their lead ballast.
