Chapter 461: Deepwater Construction

Translator: _Min_  Editor: Rundi

 

Due to the shape of Droplet, it had faced no resistance when traversing in the water . It could move through fifty meters in the blink of an eye with the instrumentation showing a speed of <Nautical Speed: 75 knot/hour . > 
"Damn, just from pure speed, it could easily defeat the fastest submarine in the world . " With the ocean soaring under his feet, Jiang Chen couldn't help but exclaim at its magnificence .

He remembered that the fastest submarine in the world is the Russian K Class Ballistic Nuclear Submarine with its highest speed reaching 44 . 7 knots . And the speed of Droplet could achieve a daunting 75 knots .

He was wondering how the rumored superconducting magnetic fluid submarine faired against his "ride . "

The jagged trenches were filled with swaying seaweed . The colorful fishes freely roamed amongst them . The jellyfish and eel danced under the rhythm of the bubble . All the scenes were captured on the walls of the Droplet .

Other than that, Jiang Chen saw a shark .

When the Droplet passed by it, the giant seemed to have ignored the Droplet as it turned its body and instantly disappeared from Jiang Chen's field of vision .

Following gradually increasing depth, the light from the surface began to fade, and the claustrophobic feeling from the dark blue eeriness was more and more apparent . Jiang Chen was uncertain if he had deep sea phobia, but he still closed the wide-angle cameras and only left the four visual windows in the four directions open .



"Droplet, where are we now?"

"We are still 100 nautical miles away from our destination . "

[100 nautical miles, or around one hour?]

Seeing that there was still some time, Jiang Chen headed to the living quarters .

The living quarters were compacted together with two beds with nylon hooks on each side of the room . If the beds were lifted up, the table and closet underneath would appear . Jiang Chen examined the interior of the submarine before he instructed the submersible to wake up him once they reached their targeted location . Then he stuffed himself into the sleeping bed to take a nap .

One hour later, with gentle music, Jiang Chen opened his eyes .

When he got off the bed and returned to the cockpit, he looked toward the control panel before his eyes widen in disbelief .

7500 meters under the surface?

The dark abyss where life is restricted .

In the entire area, only a light beam shining from the front of the Droplet remained . The black and shiny rocky surface reflected the faint light under the light beam . The disturbed creatures nesting on the surface scattered before they escaped to the darkness nearby .

Other than the odd-looking deep sea creatures, the cracks on the bottom of the ocean constantly spat out scorching air bubbles . The dark red light was just like a volcano, possessing an incredible amount of energy .

At the same time, a ten meter long, flat-shaped fish slowly moved toward Droplet . The disc-shaped head had no visible eyes, and the nail-like teeth looked horrifying . It curiously examined the Droplet and even used its mouth to touch it . But it quickly swam away as if it was electrocuted without turning its head .

The static electricity on the surface of the Droplet would make most of the deep sea creatures lose their interest . The design was put in place to protect and ensure the safety of the submersible while also there to protect the safety of the creatures .

Without playing further, Jiang Chen manually controlled the Droplet based on the mining deposition marked on the map and moved to the top of the rich molybdenum manganese nodules .

"Initiate mining module . " After confirming the targeted location, Jiang Chen order .

"Roger, Mr . Captain . " The artificial intelligence politely answered .

Immediately, the circular tube below the Droplet separated out . A trial of air bubbles dispersed out from behind the circular tube and pushed the torpedo-shaped tube to the targeted deposition .

100 meters .

50 meters .

10 meters .

The light locked onto the circular tube as Jiang Chen stared at the scene without blinking .

The black rock was embedded into the greyish black mudstone similar to a road built with pebbles . The circular tube stooped above the black rock with the engine stalling .

Jiang Chen scanned the map on the screen; the green dot that marked the location of the submersible coincided with the red dot on the mining map .

After a brief paused, Jiang Chen ordered affirmatively, "Mining module, deploy!"

"Roger . "

Bubbles appeared from the bottom of the circular tube as a graphene hook shot toward the bottom of the sea . The cable tightened and slowly dragged the circular tube toward the ground and stopped three meters before reaching the surface .

The circular tube gradually deployed with the hatch door on the two sides extended out to release two rocket-like items . The rocket was five meters in length and one meter in diameter, the tail was connected to the inner circular tube with a graphene tunnel .

The two rockets were released from the circular tube, and the head immediately dove down with a series of water bubbles propelling it from behind, pushing the rockets down into the sea .

The rockets' head pierced into the rock body .

Then an almost miraculous scene happened .

The tail of the rocket popped out, while it created more air bubbles, just like an umbrella opening, it expanded into a circular disc with a radius of ten meters . The disc slowly descended and clipped onto the flat sea surface .

From afar, it was just like a circular tube connecting two bowls flipped upside down with graphene tubes .

"Mining module deployed, please deploy transportation module . "

The courteous digital voice sounded again and brought Jiang Chen back from being shocked by the technology .

The transportation module was four graphene cables and an oval-shaped ascending device . Because of the size of the equipment, Jiang Chen didn't bring it aboard the submersible . Since he had the storage dimension, it was easy to bring things under water .

With Droplet stalling, Jiang Chen returned to the apocalypse and headed to the backyard of the mansion . The place stored his Dolphin-10, a bunch of graphene cables from the Sixth Street factory .

Under the deep sea environment, 7000 meters under, normal materials could not withstand the water pressure . Therefore, graphene played a key role .

After putting everything into the storage dimension, Jiang Chen returned to the Droplet .

With a hand pressed against the hatch door, his consciousness submerged into the storage dimension . It didn't take long before the graphene cables were deployed outside of the submersible .

Then, Jiang Chen traveled a few more times between the modern world and the apocalypse and released all the construction material outside of the Droplet .

He ordered the Droplet to restart again, and the smart system began to connect the graphene cables together with the floatation markers, using the blueprint stored in the mining module .

He didn't need to do anything after . With five hours remaining of construction time, Jiang Chen yawned and returned to the living quarters .

 The artificial intelligence will take over .

As the captain, he only needed to take a nap . And once construction was completed, he could return home .
