DEEP­EST OCEAN POINT FOUND

Asian Diver (English) - - History -

The Bri­tish ship Chal­lenger II bounces sound waves off the ocean bot­tom and lo­cates what ap­pears to be the sea’s deep­est point. It is sub­se­quently named the Chal­lenger

Deep. The site is found in the

Mar­i­ana Trench. If you could put

Mount Ever­est on the ocean floor in the Mar­i­ana Trench, its sum­mit would lie about a mile be­low the ocean sur­face.
