Triton sub heading for the Mariana as well!

Looks like Richard Branson isn't the only one aiming for inner space. It seems the race has been joined by the Triton 36000 deep diving submarine. After 50 years, the Triton sub plans to return to the deepest place in Earth's ocean, the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean. Only two people have reached this depth before. Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard made their history making trip in January 1960 and no one has been back since.
