Cool pictures from the deepest place on Earth located at Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean. At 36,200 foot, the trench was created by ocean-to-ocean subduction, a phenomena in which a plate topped by oceanic crust is subducted beneath another plate topped by oceanic crust. As you can guess, Mariana Trench is home to some very cool and very weird looking creatures as these pictures show...

Location of Mariana Trench
Located just east of the 14 Mariana Islands (11″21′ North latitude and 142″ 12′ East longitude ) near Japan is Mariana Trench and is the deepest part of the earth’s oceans. It is the deepest location on Earth in fact.

This picture shows Mariana Trench (or Marianas Trench) reaches a maximum depth of about 11,033 metres or 36,200ft. If you think that Mount Everest is 8,848 metres high then you can see how deep this is!
