Only two other people have traveled to the bottom of the Sirena Deep – Alan Jamieson and Victor Vescovo. From ocean depths to the ISS Connor, the founder and CEO of The Connor Group, a real estate investment firm based in Dayton, Ohio, said Patrick Lahey will pilot the mission. Lahey, CEO and owner of Triton Submarines, has completed more than 10,000 dives and is considered the world’s most experienced submersible pilot.

The two dives are tentatively scheduled for April 15 and April 17, but they are weather-condition dependent. So, they could dive earlier or later, Connor said. The “hadal zone,” or the area of the ocean below 20,000 feet, is considered the last frontier of exploration on Earth. “Hadal exploration” is exploration at depths beneath 20,000 feet, or 6,000 meters.
Expedition leader Rob McCallum is the primary mission planner. His team has completed more than 1,200 successful missions. Also on board for the exploration will be the master of the expedition vessel (DSSV Pressure Drop) Capt. Stuart Buckle and Jamieson, the expedition’s chief scientist. McCallum calls the area of the dive, the last frontier of exploration on earth. ‘Irreplaceable’:1,000-year-old Native American rock carvings vandalized in Georgia’s Chattahoochee National Forest
“I’m thrilled to be part of this expedition and have the opportunity to conduct valuable scientific research,” he said, noting that there is always a chance to make a discovery that has never been seen before. The opportunity for “‘scientific discovery,” and the ability to sustain Ohio’s proclivity for innovation, research and discovery, is what motivated Connor to become part of the mission in the abyss of the ocean.
