It’s a well-known fact that human beings have only explored a small portion of the Earth’s oceans, estimated to be around 5%. However, did you know that the number of viruses in the ocean surpasses the quantity of stars present in the Milky Way? Another interesting fact is that the deepest part of the ocean descends down to about 36,200 feet. Have you ever heard of hydrothermal vents? These deep-sea vents can attain temperatures of up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit. Although if you ever reached that depth, the pressure from the water would likely crush you before you were melted.
Are these details making you feel uneasy? If so, you might have thalassophobia, an intense fear of vast bodies of water. While many people enjoy going to the beach or swimming in a warm lake during the summer, for some, these locations can be their worst nightmares. If you consider yourself to be solely a land creature, you may want to avoid reading further. However, if you’re fascinated by the mysteries of the ocean and the incredible force that water possesses, you’re in for an exciting adventure.
