WILLIAM (BILL) STONE – REAL EXTREME!

William C. Stone, better known as Bill Stone, is an engineer by profession, but by vocation a scientist is a caver. He gained his fame thanks to numerous studies and dives into deep caves, using autonomous underwater means. It would seem that everything is already open and known, but Bill defies these beliefs and each time proves the opposite to us.

The formation of Bill Stone on the path of the caver.

William Stone was born on December 7, 1952 in Pennsylvania, where he spent his entire childhood. His activity and interest in exploring caves amazed and inspired many to exploit. For the first time he felt like a caver at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, which he graduated in 1974 with a bachelor’s degree. In 1976, he entered the University of Texas, where he was fortunate enough to meet people with such a passion for discovery. From this moment you can begin to talk about the records of Bill Stone. After receiving a doctorate in technical sciences, William from 1980 to 2004 began working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. In parallel with his core business, Bill founded the Construction Metrology and Automation Group, which he led for seven years. Stone had to resign and abandon his previous job in order to completely immerse himself in Stone Aerospace’s new projects.

Achievements

From 1989 to 1999, Bill received permission from the state of Florida to study the Waculla Springs Cave. For this operation, more than 100 amateur cavers were gathered, who were ready to take part in the Vakulla-2 expedition and plunge into caves to draw up a map of the underground area.

Becoming the lead researcher for a NASA project called DEPTHX, Bill was presented with the opportunity to create an “Autonomous Uninhabited Underwater Vehicle” for exploring underground caves and craters around the world. This experiment was successful and Stone was finally able to secure funding for the new ENDURANCE project, thanks to which, in 2008 and 2009, researchers were able to study caves and lakes on the mainland of Antarctica. The success of new equipment for studying the depths pushes NASA to create an apparatus for space exploration and the search for signs of life on other planets.

The research of Bill Stone is described in the books of modern writers. Barbara am Ende and Monte Paulsen, in their book Beyond the Depths: Deadly Descent into the Most Insidious Cave in the World, talk about Stone’s diving in Mexico.

Highscores.

The main merit and record of Bill Stone is the discovery of the deepest cave in the world. Scientists put forward this shocking statement thanks to an experiment conducted 25 years ago. In 1990, researchers dumped about 10 kilograms of dye into a cave. The colored stream of water overcame about 2.5 km and fell into the Santo Domingo River. And in 2017, the long-awaited immersion in the Cheva cave took place. According to scientists, the area of ​​these caves is 175 square meters. kilometers, and the depth exceeds 2200 m, which is deeper than the cave “Voronya-Krubera”, which is located on the Gagrinsky ridge in Abkhazia.

In 1990, Bill Stone and his team immersed themselves in the cave systems of Mexico. The tunnels of this system are 56 kilometers long and 2237 meters deep. Thanks to Bill’s research, work was completed on the study of St. Augustine’s Cave, which began back in 1966, and a map of Whoutle Caves was compiled. What Bill Stone does now is not known. But there is hope that after some time we will learn about his new exciting dives and discoveries. There are caves that are waiting for their discoverer.

For the first time he felt like a caver at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, which he graduated in 1974 with a bachelor’s degree. In 1976, he entered the University of Texas, where he was fortunate enough to meet people with such a passion for discovery. From this moment you can begin to talk about the records of Bill Stone.
