Ocean waters can cause sunburn.
Do not think that ocean waters will not cause sunburns by blocking the harmful rays of the sun. On the contrary, the World Health Organization warns us about this issue, stating that water reflects 10 percent of the sun's ultraviolet rays and sand 15 percent.

we don't know how to explore the oceans.
The director of the movie Titanic, James Cameron, became the second person in history to achieve such a feat by reaching the deepest point of the ocean, the Mariana Trench, in 2012. However, due to the high pressure and challenging conditions, this dive lasted for several hours. We can spend even longer periods in space, and we still don't know how to explore these vast depths.

The oceans are full of black holes.
If you think that only space is home to black holes, you are wrong. In fact, the oceans are full of whirlpools that devour everything that comes their way.
In fact there is research that proves ocean eddies are mathematically equal to blackholes in space (you can refer to the related research here: www.scitechdaily.com/ocean-eddies-mathematically-equivalent-black-holes/ ) Even more terrifying, these eddies are so large that; some can reach 150 kilometers in diameter.
Here is a photo of such an eddy taken from space by nasa:

We are constantly discovering new creatures that terrify us.
Not a day goes by that we don't come across another 'creature' lurking in the depths of the ocean. Fangtooth fish, Goblin shark, Frilled shark and many more... When we calculate that the largest squid ever discovered was only 11 years ago; Guess what we can find in the next 11 years.

This creature is even more dangerous than sharks!
It is understandable not wanting to come face-to-face with a shark while swimming. But what about pesky jellyfish, of which there are millions in the oceans? In fact, jellyfish kill five times more people than sharks, thanks to their venom and being undetectable underwater.

The ocean floor is full of shipwrecks.
While we may think that when we dive into the ocean, we only have stagnant water below us, the reality is far more frightening than that. According to the data of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, the ocean floor is thought to be home to about 3 million sunken ships.

And of course with dead bodies.
Of course, the ships we mentioned above did not come there on their own. The bodies of crew and passengers on sunken ships remain in the ocean for surprisingly long periods. In 2014, researchers diving into an underwater cave off the coast of Mexico found the remains of a girl estimated to be about 12,000 years old. You see, the ocean is a huge cemetery.

This deep-seated danger can literally crush you.
The average depth of the ocean is around 3794 meters, and even most trained divers can only dive to 40 meters. The reason for this is that when you go deeper, it rises to an irresistible level and your lungs collapse completely, your eardrum is ruptured; it is even the very pressure that can cause you to die suddenly by being out of breath.

Mysterious voice from the deep...
In 1997, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration noticed a screeching sound coming from deep in the Pacific Ocean, which they called 'The Bloop'. Although scientists speculate that it may be due to glacial movements, no one has been able to pinpoint the source of this sound to date.

the sun's rays can reach only one point of the ocean.
19. And finally, the sun's rays can reach only one point of the ocean.
Sunlight entering the water can only travel up to 1000 meters under the right conditions. The area between 200 and 1000 meters is called the 'twilight' zone, in which the intensity of light decreases rapidly as depth increases.

The oceans attract lightning like a magnet.
While the oceans are not as heavily attacked by lightning as the land, when a lightning strikes, the consequences can be disastrous. Because water is a conductive substance, the effects of lightning spread quickly and can have devastating consequences for many people, animals and ships.
