Human beings have infiltrated the far corners of the Earth, and now, after an American man reached the deepest depths of the Pacific Ocean, it seems that we've even left our mark at the bottom of the sea. After Vescovo's record-breaking dive, other team members took four other subsequent dives to the trench.
Walsh watched on as the team made their historic accomplishment. Previously, the deepest dive totaled over 10,912 metres and was carried out by U.S. Navy lieutenant Don Walsh and Swish engineer Jacques Piccard in 1960.
"Now in the winter of my life, it was a great honour to be invited on this expedition to a place of my youth".
The team claims to have discovered four new species of prawn-like crustaceans called amphipods, observed a creature called a spoon worm more than 22,000 feet down and a pink snailfish at more than 26,000 feet down, BBC reported. The team also discovered brightly colored rocks on the sea floor, potentially formed by microbes, the BBC reports.

"It was very disappointing to see obvious human contamination of the deepest point in the ocean", Vescovo said.
The Five Deeps Expedition uses a submarine named the DSVLimiting Factor, which is capable of withstanding 1,000 bars of pressure and is built with titanium walls. Two of the dives, including the deepest one made on 28 April, were solo dives piloted by Vescovo.
As well as working under pressure, the sub has to operate in the pitch black and near freezing temperatures.
Diving isn't Vescovo's only passion- he's also a climber.
Video clips by the Atlantic Production of Vescovo landing on ocean soil do point out an unidentified object in an otherwise barren-looking floor.
"This vehicle is effectively a reliable elevator that can transport us to any depth, in any ocean".
"We also had to design new rigs that would go inside Victor's submersible and capture every moment of Victor's dives".
