Former NASA astronaut descends 35,000 feet to the ocean floor

For the first time in history, a woman has reached the deepest point in Earth’s ocean floor. This past week, former NASA astronaut Kathy Sullivan reached the bottom of “Challenger Deep”, located almost 6.9 miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

Challenger Deep is considered the deepest point in Earth’s oceans and lays within the Marianas Trench (about 1,100 miles east of the Philippines). This history-making dive is expected to provide the first 4K video of the Challenger Deep.
