Deepest Underwater Cave Discovered
Here is one of the most exciting news, team of explorers have discovered one of the deepest underwater cave. It lies 1365 feet under the water surface. You can imagine how deep the cave is by the fact that whole Empire State building could fit inside.
Polish explorer named Krzyszto Starnawski have discovered one of the caves named Hranická Propast located near the Czech town of Hranice in the year 1999. In an interview given to National Geographic, who is the sponsor for his most recent expedition, that when hot water was saturated with carbon dioxide it bubbled like a volcano. It even caused his skin itch.
He tried each and every year and in 2014 finally he reached at 656 feet. He was thinking at that point that he had found the bottom but some of the rocks crumbled at that year only and making a way so that he could reach at 1214 feet.
Starnawski who is leading the team of explorers has to spend approximately two to four hours in a dry compression bell. There is only one way to explore such a deep place that is by deploying Remote Operated Vehicle(ROV) which is a team is taking care during the record mission on Tuesday.

ROV reached a depth of 1,325 feet which was 39 feet deeper than the previous record. However, Hranická Propast can be deeper. In a statement, the Czech Speleological Society, said when the robot reached its deepest level, “it was as deep as its rope could go, but the bottom was still nowhere in sight.”
