  Bathyscaphe Trieste
Trieste was a deep-diving research bathyscaphe[?] ("deep boat") with a crew of two.
Transported to a new base at San Diego, she was extensively modified and then used in a series of deep-submergence tests in the Pacific Ocean during the next few years, including a dive to the deepest known part of the ocean in January 1960.
Trieste is a permanent exhibit at the Navy Museum in Washington, DC.

 History of the Bathyscaph Trieste
Between September 1965 and May 1966, TRIESTE II again underwent extensive modification and conversion at Mare Island Naval Shipyard but there is no clear record that she was ever operated in that new configuration,ie, the addition of skeds or outriggers on both sides of the sphere.
In the spring of 1980, TRIESTE II (DSV-1) deployed to the "Mid-America Trench".
TRIESTE II (DSV-1) was successful in locating and recovering the faulty hydro phone from a depth of 4100 feet.

 Bathyscaphe Trieste - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Trieste was a deep-diving research bathyscaphe ("deep boat") with a crew of two people, which reached a record-breaking depth of about 10,900 m, in the deepest part of the oceans, the Challenger Deep, in 1960.
The crew pressure sphere was 6.5 ft (2.16 m), attached to the underside of the floats and acccessed from the deck of the vessel by a vertical tunnel which penetrated the float and ran down to the sphere hatch.
On January 23, 1960, Trieste reached the ocean floor in the Challenger Deep (the deepest southern part of the Mariana Trench), carrying Jacques Piccard (son of Auguste) and Lieutenant Don Walsh, USN.

 Trieste
On October 2, 1959, Trieste was loaded onto the freighter Santa Maria for transport to the Mariana Islands for a series of deep-submergence operations in the Pacific Ocean, into the Challenger Deep, the deepest spot in the ocean identified by the British ship Challenger II in 1851.
On January 23, 1960 — the day of Trieste's historic dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench — the waves were 5 to 6 feet high in the ocean when Jacques Piccard (Auguste's son), and Navy Lt. Donald Walsh boarded Trieste from a rubber raft.
Trieste was taken out of service soon after completing that mission and is now housed at the Navy Museum, at the Washington Navy Yard, Washington, DC.

ABOARD THE USS LEWIS OFF GUAM--(NAVNEWS)--The Navy's bathyscaph Trieste again set a world's diving record when she probed 37,800 feet to the depths of the Marianas Trench, deepest known hole in the world's oceans, Jan. 23.
No difficulties were experienced during the dive, during which the Trieste was subjected to a pressure of 16, 883 pounds per square inch.
This depth program has been named "Project Nekton" and, according to a Navy announcement, provides "scientific knowledge of sunlight penetration, underwater visibility, transmission of man-made sounds, and marine geological studies." The Trieste had previously made two record-setting dives, the last on Jan. 7 when she descended to 24,000 feet.
