“The explorers who set one of the last meaningful records on earth.”
Oceanographers and explorers are a breed of human that I find fascinating. And being someone who loves the water, I find inspiring.
Ben Taub’s account of Victor Vescovo’s “Five Deeps” — “an attempt to become the first person to reach the deepest point in each ocean”.
Well worth the hour read. Inspiring. Gripping. With the little historical and mechanical details I love.
