20,000 leagues in 84 days

Naval History Blog tells us that submarine USS Triton circumnavigated the globe on, or under, Magellan’s route in 84 days in 1960.

Sure, it’s not actually 20,000 leagues. Maybe 9,000. But imagine if they’d found a hole in the mid-Pacific trench and journeyed to the centre of the Earth?
