The greatest depth of the world is found in which ocean?
The greatest depth on Earth is recorded at The Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench. It is the deepest known point in Earth’s oceans with a depth of 35,814 feet. If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on the Earth would be placed at this location, then it would get covered by over one mile of water.
The Mariana Trench, which is situated within the territories of the U.S. dependencies of the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam, was designated a U.S. national monument in 2009.
The first descent to the bottom of the Mariana Trench took place on January 23, 1960. The French-built U.S. Navy-operated bathyscaphe Trieste—with Swiss ocean engineer Jacques Piccard and U.S. naval officer Don Walsh aboard—made a record dive to 35,814 feet (10,916 meters) in Challenger Deep. The next person to descend into that location did so more than 50 years after Piccard and Walsh.
