RE: Silurian hypothesis
Bit pedantic!
Are you saying Deep Sea (which my son when he was 5 continually called them dipsy divers) Divers don’t need to be encased in an atmospheric pressure suit kept at a 1 atmosphere pressure when they go down?
Why is one of the best ‘games’ that Oceanographers like to play is that of decorating a polystyrene cup, lowering it over the side on a long string down near to the ocean bottom so that when it’s hauled back up its now the size of a thimble covered with now miniature drawings? Presumably it’s been ‘crushed’ under the pressure or is it the terminology that you object to? Should I have said if humans even could stand on the surface of Jupiter (without a suit) they wouldn’t be ‘crushed’ by the atmospheric pressure but rather they would shrink, collapse, deflate, flatten, dry up, shrivel, wilt, wither, abate, decrease, diminish, dwindle, lessen, recede or any permutation or any combination of these?
I’m pretty sure I’d still be dead.
