All the continental high points, both poles..and the bottom of the Challenger Deep, beating Cameron's record by 97 feet....

Dallas businessman Victor Vescovo became the deepest diving human in history when his Five Deeps Expedition reached the bottom of the Pacific Ocean's Challenger Deep on April 28, the expedition disclosed Monday.

Vescovo, who has been on a years-long journey to reach the deepest points in each of the planet's five oceans, spent more than four hours in the basin of the Mariana Trench, the deepest known point in the ocean.

"We have indeed built and perfected a submersible that can easily and reliably take two people to the bottom of the any point on Earth, even the Challenger Deep," Vescovo told The Dallas Morning News. "This will allow for an unprecedented level of access for scientists and others to explore the ocean, increase our understanding of it, and hopefully make life better and richer in the future."

The last time a human visited the Challenger Deep was Canadian filmmaker James Cameron, who reached a depth of 35,756 feet in his submersible in 2012. The 53-year-old Vescovo descended to 35,853 feet, according to the expedition.

pretty dang cool, good work Victor and team

And what did he find there?  Trash ... but indeed an amazing accomplishment.
