People Get to the Deepest Point on Earth – level 1

16-11-2020 07:00

A Chinese submarine is on its way to the Mariana Trench. The Mariana Trench is the deepest place on Earth. It is in the western Pacific Ocean. It is 10,971 meters deep.

The submarine gets to the depth of 10,000 meters. It is an important moment for the crew. Three men are on the submarine. They want to explore the bottom of the sea.

But it is not easy. The place is completely dark. No sunlight can get to such depth. The submarine must have very strong lights.

The submarine has robotic hands. Robotic means that something has electronic parts. They are mechanical hands. The men control them. They make it possible to get stones and other interesting things from the bottom of the ocean.

Difficult words: submarine (a ship that travels under water), depth (how deep something is), mechanical (something that works as a machine).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
