According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), “The deepest part of the ocean is called the Challenger Deep and is located beneath the western Pacific Ocean in the southern end of the Mariana Trench, which runs several hundred kilometers southwest of the U.S. territorial island of Guam. Challenger Deep is approximately 11,030 meters (36,200 feet) [or 10+04 feet] deep. It is named after the HMS Challenger, whose crew first sounded the depths of the trench in 1875 [10+02 years ago].”
