Jacques Piccard au salon Aqua Eau & Vie à Bulle
C'etait le samedi 11 juin 2005 a Bulle, dans le cadre de la 2eme edition du salon Aqua. Jacques Picccard donnait sa derniere conference sur le sujet de la decouverte des grands fonds. Jacques Piccard a battu le record du monde de profondeur, le 22 janvier 1960 La marine des USA lui demande d'explorer, dans le Pacifique, la fosse des Mariannes, plus exactement dans la fosse Challenger, au large des Iles Mariannes. A 8 heures, le 22 janvier 1960, Jacques Piccard et le lieutenant americain Don Walsh s'installent dans la sphere. A 8 heures 23, la plongee commence. A 11 heures 44, ils sont deja a 8 800 metres. L'obscurite est totale, l'eau limpide. A 13 heures, le Trieste repose sur le fond. Ils etablissent ainsi un record de plongee imbattable, puisqu'il n'existe pas d'autre endroit sur terre qui soit plus profond que la fosse Challenger. Descendu a 10'916 m, il n'en a pas cru ses yeux en apercevant un poisson plat a la lueur des projecteurs: «C'etait un signe tres clair qu'il est deraisonnable de vouloir se debarrasser des dechets radioactifs dans l'ocean».
