 Depth of the Deepest Dive in a Bathyscaphe
A bathyscaphe is a submarine-like vessel designed to operate at great depths.
The bathyscaphe is not only used for exploration, in 1963 it was used to search for the hull of the nuclear submarine USS Thresher, which had plunged 2560 meters to the ocean floor.
The rift valley is the separation between the Eurasian plate and the North American plate of the earth's crust and it is one of the many sites in the ocean bottom where molten rock oozes forth to form new crust.

 Current Vessels: Submersibles - Trieste
The bathyscaphe, the creation of Professor Auguste Piccard, is the underwater equivalent of a lighter-than-air craft such as a blimp, operating in reverse.
Some horizontal maneuverability of the bathyscaphe is provided by two battery-powered reversible propellers mounted on the hull.
The long-range objectives of this program are to explore the ocean environment at great depths and to evaluate the potentialities of the bathyscaphe both as a research tool and as a naval craft, such as a submarine rescue vessel or a deep diving submarine.

Bathyscaphe, submarine vessel designed to operate at great depths.
The first such vessel, invented in 1947 by the Swiss physicist Auguste Piccard, explored the ocean bottom at a depth, in 1954, as great as 4000 m (13,125 ft) and operated under water pressure of 0.42 metric ton/sq cm.
The bathyscaphe Trieste, built in 1953, set a world record on January 23, 1960, when it descended 10,915 m (about 35,810 ft) to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, deepest known point in the oceans, 338 km (about 210 mi) southwest of Guam.

The deep-diving research bathyscaphe Trieste was first launched in 1953 near Naples, Italy, by the Swiss scientist who designed her, Auguste Piccard.
The intrepid divers were housed in the 6-foot-diameter white sphere that was attached to the bottom of the buoyant tank, which reached a length of over 50 feet.
The tank was filled with floats containing some 70 tons of gasoline (gasoline is lighter than water) to allow the bathyscaphe to float on the surface before beginning the dive.

The Glass Bathyscaphe asks what was the crucial difference between oriental and occidental societies in the late middle ages and Renaissance that meant that those in the west developed modern scientific method and those in the east did not?
Their argument is subtle and sophisticated but they are in no doubt that glass has never been given the central place it deserves.
Ironically, given its subject, The Glass Bathyscaphe has a slightly opaque title (how many know, without consulting a dictionary, what a bathyscaphe is?) but, for a short book, it is a very challenging one, asking us to look anew at the whole history of science and technology.--Nick Rennison
