A Chinese unmanned submersible has dived to a depth of 10,767 meters, setting a new record for the country, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) said on Tuesday. “Haidou-1” set the record at the Mariana Trench in the West Pacific, the deepest area in the world, during a scientific expedition from June 22 to August 12. Scientists also collected over 2,000 biological samples, including some unidentified species. China is the third country with the capacity to reach depths below 10,000 meters, after the US and Japan.
