How the Earth Was Made – The Deepest Place on Earth

Today on Discovery Enterprise we are going on a voyage into the Abyss into the deepest place on Earth – the Marianas Trench.


The Marianas Trench is the deepest place on earth, deeper than Mt. Everest is high. The trench is where the ocean floor disappears into the centre of the earth. The pressures at this depth are 17 times greater than what it takes to crush a nuclear submarine. Only two men on January 23, 1960, U.S. Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard aboard the Swiss-designed, Italian-built, United States Navy bathyscaphe Trieste have ever been down the Trench, fewer than have set foot on the moon. Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of that intrepid voyage.


Follow us on this daring mission into the abyss and explore the extraordinary geology that has created this deep scar along the ocean floor.
