Challenger Deep is the deepest known point in the Earth’s seabed (about 11,000 metres), at the southern end of the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean. It is named after HMS Challenger, whose crew made the first measurements of its depth.
Only four vehicles have descended into Challenger Deep: the manned
bathyscaphe Trieste (1960), the unmanned Kaik (1995), the unmanned Nereus (2009)
and the manned Deepsea Challenger (2012).
