Deepest Location earth - Deepest Point On Earth Pictures
Cool pictures from the deepest place on Earth located at Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean. At 36,200 foot, the trench was created by ocean-to-ocean subduction,a phenomena in which a plate topped by oceanic crust is subducted beneath another plate topped by oceanic crust.
Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench is the deepest point in Earth's oceans. The bottom there is 10,924 meters (35,840 feet) below sea level. If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth, were placed at this location it would be covered by over one mile of water. The Challenger Deep is named after the British survey ship Challenger II, which discovered this deepest location in 1951.
As you can guess, Mariana Trench is home to some very cool and very weird looking creatures as these pictures show...
