Sounds like a great job for ME's. The entire upper 2/3 (above 10,000 ft)
would have to be pressurized and supplied with bereathing oxygen--the
biggest ASME Code vessel ever built. Not to mention the plumbing system.
A 30,000 foot head of water makes out to just under 15000 psi. Just
figuring how to deal with a toilet flush could be a whole new career.
