    The Mariana Trench sits like a crescent-shaped dent in the floor of the Pacific. A 2,550 km long, 69 km wide fracture that plummets down into a pure black void of the Hadal Zone. At the bottom, it hosts the deepest known location on Earth. The Challenger Deep, 11,033 metres or 36,200 feet beneath the waves. The trench itself is but one part of a global network of deep scars that cut across the ocean floor. Features that formed from a process called subduction. In the case of the Mariana Trench, the western edge of the Pacific Plate was thrust beneath the smaller Mariana Plate to the west, creating the deep fracture. Molten material then rose through volcanoes near the trench, building the nearby Mariana Islands.

Do you have any idea how insane it is for a creature to ingest the minerals on the sea floor. And use its gut to create an organic form of aluminum to armor itself with?? That is straight out of scifi. That's is Incredible. More of this is needed.

True story: When I was in the USCG our ship traversed the Trench. (Our ship was a then-new 378' jet powered Hamilton-class cutter. Decommissioned in 2017, it's now part of the Vietnam Coast Guard fleet.)

Compared when people wanted to go to Mars by Rocket, i prefer discover this mysterious place in the earth.

I think we should be clear about something: " The deepest part " is only the point at which it is accessible, that can be defined, so we may not know the true depth.

Had swim call over the trench back in the 80s. Being a Midwestern kid used to ropeswings and diving off cliffs into the river, I had no problem diving off the elevator of an aircraft carrier into the deep blue. It was awesome and huge relief to the nasty heat and humidity of the Equator and the ship. I didn't even mind seeing the Marines armed to teeth posted as shark watch. But as I tread water and cooling off I remember looking down into the water all those miles below and started having visions of giant unknown critters...back to the boat I went. Lol ill never forget that.

This is some good audio mixing, never thought classical could sound so good with the exploration of the dark and cold unknown.

The narrator does a great job of creating an aura of mystery. The depths of the ocean are a truly fascinating thing! Loving this channel's content so far, keep it up!

Your voice is perfect for documentaries. I literally could sit all day listening to you while I draw. There’s so many little things I love about this video like the editing and the audio. I literally could see this being on TV, only it’s way better and way more relaxing.

Awesome video! And I’m so happy to see the unique bacterias on the seafloor being mentioned, too. Microbes in weird environments are remarkable, and without them, none of the cool animals we focus on would be around!

Great video! Fascinating that scientists can still discover living organisms coming from this crazy and scary deep part of the ocean. I think there are still huge type of fishes/sharks there at the trench, hiding or just probably looking for a perfect time to show up. Scary but really exciting to learn about those creatures.

One of the best videos I've seen in a long time. It's a good reason why we should spend time exploring our own planet and understanding and protecting it, rather than spending billions of dollars looking into space exploration.

I'm both so fascinated and terrified of the deep ocean, the life is so extraordinary

Leo, the narrator of this utterly fascinating film is completely beguiling. I could listen for hours in total bliss. Your work is of such an amazing standard that it wouldn't look out of place next to Classics from the god, Sir Attenborough himself.

These are the stories of the ocean with which I grew up, stories like the voyage of the Trieste and her crew. I like the direction in which you are heading, Leo, but tell us more of the story of Picard's fish! That sounds like a story we "thalassophiles" will all want to hear!

Wow....we are even polluting places that we can't physically reach. Pretty sad! Thanks for sharing your love for the ocean.

it's insane that the distance from the water's surface to the (known) sea floor at the trench is further than the distance an airplane at max altitude flies above the earth's surface.

I don't think I've seen anything more cursed than a piece of Frozen merchandise at the bottom of the Mariana Trench
