The London deep-level shelters are eight deep level air-raid shelters that were built under London Underground stations during World War II. Each consists of a pair of parallel tunnels 5.3m in diameter. Each shelter was designed to hold up to 8,000 people. Ten shelters were planned, but only eight were completed (St. Paul's and Oval were not built). It was planned that after the war the shelte...
The CSO Deep Blue is the world's largest purpose-built ultra deepwater pipelay and subsea construction vessel. It can lay flowlines and umbilicals, and support developments in water depths ranging from 75m to 2,500m.
The CSO Deep Blue has an overall length of 206.5m and a moulded breadth of 32m. It has a moulded depth of 17.8m and an operating draught of from 7.5-8.95m, with a 10...

The deepest point of the Mariana Trench is called The Challenger Deep, so named after the British exploration vessel HMS Challenger II, and it is located 210 miles south-west of Guam. A depth of -10,911 meters was reached in 1960 by the Trieste, a manned submersible owned by the U.S. Navy.
The descent took almost five hours and the two men spent barely twenty minutes on the ocean floo...

The Centre sends command operations and receives data from the recent Hayabusa space probe.
The remote location of the Centre was chosen carefully to reduce noise from towns, allowing for the rec...
Representing a narrow "keyhole" view stretching to the visible horizon of the universe, the Hubble Deep Field image covers a speck of the sky only about the width of a dime 75 feet away. Though the field is a very small sample of the heavens, it is considered representative of the typical distribution of galaxies in space, because the universe, statistically, looks largely the same in...
A possible impact crater site is the feature known as St. Magnus Bay in the Shetland Islands.
A massive impact seems to be the cause for the peculiar shape of the bay.
It has a diameter of eleven kilometres and is about 165m deep, which is very deep for the coastal waters in the region. The crater is oval in shape because of the east-west geological compression that the area...
