The Triton 36,000 submarine will reportedly see new depths of the Pacific Ocean, a feat that has not been attempted since 1960 when two men went to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, making them the first people to reach the deepest point on Earth. Of course, this would not necessarily be that interesting if not for the look of the Triton 36,000 submarine.

Unlike traditional subs, the Triton 36,000 is a three-man submarine that boasts a glass dome that does not look like it could withstand the enormous water pressure at such depths. Yet the designers claim that the Triton 36,000 submarine's glass walls actually become stronger as the water pressure increases.

As of right now, there is no word when the Triton 36,000 submarine will embark on this record-breaking journey, so keep your eyes and ears open for news of the event. Stats for Glass Dome Submarines Trending: Older & Chilly
