The Limiting Factor will return to the Challenger Deep with a series of dives, perhaps as many as five depending on weather conditions and other factors. Two Americans will descend first, hopefully followed by the first Australian and New Zelander. We are referring to the latter dive as the first “ANZAC Dive” to the bottom of the ocean.
All the dives will be focused on continuing to map the Challenger Deep and ideally, recover larger rock samples which has proven very challenging historically. If conditions and Covid restrictions allow, we also hope to take down the first citizen of the Federated States of Micronesia, whose territory encompass the Challenger Deep.
