The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of all the oceans in the world, thought to be even 36,000 foot deep at one point.

Situated in the west of the Pacific Ocean but to the east of the Mariana Islands, very little is known about the hidden depths of the trench, leading many to argue that we know even more about the surface of Mars than we do about the seabed of the Mariana Trench.
