Caption: Trieste bathyscape. Artwork of the bathyscape Trieste, a deep-sea submersible that was used to descend to the deepest known part of the Earth's oceans. This is a point known as Challenger Deep, in the Mariana Trench near Guam in the Pacific Ocean. The record depth is around 10,900 metres below sea level and was reached on 23 January 1960. The Trieste, about 18 metres long, was designed by the Swiss physicist Auguste Piccard. It consisted of a spherical pressure capsule, for a crew of two, below large float chambers. The Challenger Deep dive was carried out by Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh.
