What would happen if you drained the ocean of water?
As unknown as the starry sky we look up to, there is also the deep sea area that we have not yet explored, knowing that 70.8% of the Earth's surface is seawater. Even though we have now invented the deep submersible, but for the secrets of the sea floor, we have been in a stage of exploration, how the creatures inside are composed, the geological landscape of the ocean, are waiting for our exploration.
Drain the seawater
Let's make a bold assumption below, let's drain all the seawater and explore the secrets of the ocean.
How much water is there on Earth?
If we talk about draining the seawater, the first question that comes to our mind is, how much water is there in all this earth? If we can really pump it dry, is it possible to see his volume capacity? According to scientists, the ocean contains 1.35 billion cubic kilometers of water, the volume of the water sphere formed can reach 1380 km, the volume of this water sphere can be comparable to the size of Pluto's moon Cajun volume.
Then let us pluck the secrets of the ocean layer by layer with the pumping machine of fantasy.
We will pump the water level to 100 meters, and in this area is not unfamiliar, this area belongs to the living area with the marine life we can observe, there is a wealth of species inhabiting here, is the most explored marine area, many of our common marine life are living in this section, a large number of fish, coral, sea turtles, and giant whale sharks are active in this water.
If the 100 meters of water is drained, there is another great news for China to come, that is, the mainland and Taiwan Province are no longer separated by sea water, we no longer need to build a long cross-sea bridge to the high-speed rail directly to Taipei, which is too convenient for us to travel to Taiwan.
Since this water we have fully understood, let us proceed down to the 200-meter interval section, this interval section, may be somewhat unfamiliar to us ordinary people, but for fishermen, this side of the area is too familiar, this is the best depth for human fishing, most of the fish are at this depth. The human eye may not even be more familiar with this area than the human tongue.
The sea has dropped to 200 meters, which is not good news for us in China, a country where food is the order of the day, and the sea fish that we usually get to eat are going to disappear. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those island countries, the decline in sea level has led to the continental shelf are exposed, the available land area of these island countries is greatly enhanced, once those archipelagos in Southeast Asia can be linked together, re-emerging out of a brand new country is not a pipe dream.
The drop in sea level to 200 meters is also extremely important for the study of Earth's history, because at this time, the largest crater on Earth, the Hixulub crater was also exposed, the impact terrain of this crater can reach 180 kilometers in diameter, scientists speculate that caused the extinction of the dinosaurs, the meteorite is likely to form this crater caused by the meteorite, its "surface" for the study of the history of the Earth has an extremely important role in advancing.
Further down we go to 800 meters, things start to become a little different, the creatures here far more than we can imagine, there are many giant sea monsters living in this habitat, we humans do not even have a way to imagine why they are able to grow so big, 6 meters long giant octopus, more than 13 meters long king squid, living in this 800 meters of the deep sea restricted area.
Due to the darkness here, coupled with the fact that humans are not yet capable of large-scale exploration of this sea, this sea has become the focus of many horror novels to figure out the area.
When the sea level drops to 1,000 meters, the world's naval forces may be reduced to chicken, because all continents will be connected to each other, Europe and the United States no longer need to be separated from the Atlantic Ocean, the Americans can land directly on the territory of Europe by land, Australia's kangaroos are also jumping through Southeast Asia directly into the Asian continent, and these Asian animals well compared to each other.
We wait until the sea level drops to 5,000 meters, I think the spectacle here will be a lot of people will make many people bright, to this area not for anything else, only for the legendary Titanic, the world's largest cruise ship, to know it above the artifacts have been sunk in this deep sea, no one explored, according to expert speculation, the value of the artifacts above has exceeded $1 billion.
But the many speculators and adventurers can only look at the seawater that once was, and sigh in wonder. If the seawater here is really drained, this opportunity to get rich will surely make any person crazy.
If the wealth of the Titanic you do not take to heart, then follow our footsteps to continue down to a depth of 7000 meters, perhaps we will be here to unlock the mysterious underwater country, the true face of Atlantis, this civilization sung by the ancient Greek sages, this mysterious underwater civilization of many mysteries, there are Antarctica said, Gibraltar said, Ireland said, a variety of speculation from ancient times to the present day let countless mariners for the crazy, now we can finally peel the onion through the way the secrets lurking in the seawater completely uncovered.
If the discovery of Atlantis is only the realization of the voyager's dream is superficial, Atlantis is the most maddening is their science and technology, using the legendary Ou magnetite is the supply of energy, which is a crystal that absorbs sunlight is to produce huge energy, the successful discovery of Ou magnetite will be for the development of our solar energy use to an unprecedented level, for the exploration of the universe are of great help.
Further down the road to reach 11,034 meters, why do we say this number? You know that before there was no pumping, only four people on earth came here by diving equipment, where we see more than rare and strange creatures, but the traces of human life, the garbage of human life all came here with the ocean currents, decomposed plastic, quietly sunk in the bottom of the sea. If aliens suddenly visit, see so much garbage also can not help but feel amazed by the human high-tech technology, actually can have such a high technological strength, can live in the deep sea.
The good dream is over, we also have to return to reality, to help the Earth's water drained, obviously impossible, but our heart for exploring the deep sea never stops, in the future we will also conquer this deep sea beneath our feet, just as we conquer the stars above us.
