We’ve seen many new developments in space. With the new James Webb Telescope, we’re able to see things we’ve never been able to see. Although, it seems that with the ocean we are falling behind in research. Only 5% of the ocean has been discovered so far. It’s hard to process that there’s still so much that we don’t know about the ocean, due to the high cost of exploration and lack of technology to effectively calculate data. Even so, I wondered how far we have been. What is the deepest part of the sea?
The Deepest Part Of The Sea
In the Western Pacific Ocean lays a 2,550 km long oceanic trench called the Mariana Trench. It is 200 km away from the Mariana Islands. In the oceanic trench, there’s a point called the Challenger Deep. It is currently the deepest point of ocean at 35,876 ft. deep which is around a 7 mile depth. The depth of the Challenger Deep is almost incomprehensible, yet we can only imagine that the actual furthest depth of the ocean is much, much deeper. We can only hope for researchers to find a way to discover one of the mysteries of the world.
