China’s self-de­signed deep-sea ex­plo­ration ves­sel “Ocean No.6” sets sail from a port in Guangzhou, cap­i­tal of south China’s Guang­dong Prov­ince, July 8.

The ves­sel will spend 282 days con­duct­ing deep-sea sur­veys and a sci­en­tific ex­pe­di­tion in Antarc­tica on a nearly 60,000-km voy­age. It will re­turn to the port in Guangzhou in April, 2017.
