Nowadays, there are countless drones that can fly in the sky, and yet only few can go under the water.
“71% of the earth is covered by an ocean but only less than 5% of which has been explored. So far 12 people have walked on the moon; around 500 people have visited outer space, but there are only 3 people has been to the deepest ocean at Mariana Trench.
