Explorers reached the bottom of the Big Blue Hole, a vast rocky coastline in Belize. Now the end of the expedition tells the story of new coal minerals, ruins, molluscs and plastic bottles.
Explorers' team, Fabien Cousteau, nephew of Jacques Cousteau, filmmaker and explorer, who made the first one famous; Founder of Richard Branson Virgin Group and creator of Ocean Unite; and Erika Bergman of Aquatica Submarines has mapped depths of 407 feet deep (124 meters) using sound waves.

When the sound waves contain different objects and formations, they reset the size and shape of the objects they capture in different ways. Using sound scans, the researchers created a complete 3D sound synchronized 3D sound, which is 1,043 feet (318 meters).
When massive geographic maps were opened, they also made fascinating discoveries.
New mineral stalactites or ice creams were found. The sea level was created at a height of 500 feet and was just a dry hole in the cave, according to Bergman's blog message. At that time, the cave fell to today's wrecks, with chapels cut into stalactites.
After hundreds of dead convoys or mollusks that apparently fell into the hole in the hollow around the hole, they could not get rid of it again and eventually left oxygen and died, he wrote in Bergman.
There were small tracks found, the conches giving their backs and their small spots, seemingly sliding. Although finding a sad sea tale, a large number of shells has been found to indicate that Conch's population is probably a healthy one, he wrote.
More discoveries will appear on the documentary INE Entertainment, which is planned for release in spring.
"The real monsters that are looking at the ocean are climate change and plastics," Branson wrote in another blog post, finding plastic bottles at the bottom of the hole.
