A hybrid remotely operated deep-sea research sub ‘Nereus’ has been lost north east of New Zealand in the Kermadec Trench.
The Nereus was exploring the Kermadec Trench, one of Earth’s deepest oceanic trenches, when it went missing.
Debris from the sub was found on the surface, leaving experts to believe that the vessel imploded due to immense pressure at 10km under.
The Nerus was an US$8 million project that helped explore places that were previously unseen and answer many questions.
