China’s most advanced deep sea exploration vessel, the "Ocean 6" has set sail for the Pacific Ocean. 

96 scientists will be on board, the biggest number of personnel ever for such a mission. 

On its 160 day voyage, the vessel will reach destinations such as Guam and Hawaii. It will explore mineral resources in the seabed and will also conduct geographic and sea biology studies. 

"Ocean 6" was designed and manufactured in China. Compared to other vessels of its kind, "Ocean 6" is bigger, safer, and provides a more comfortable living environment for the research team.
