A Dallas-based explorer has set a record for the deepest dive ever made in a submersible -- in the world's deepest ocean trench, his organization announced Monday.
Victor Vescovo reached a depth of 35,853 feet on April 28 during a dive to the bottom of Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, the deepest known point on earth. The dive was 52 feet deeper than any previous manned dive, Vescovo's Five Deeps Expedition said.
ETA: My mistake. I thought Challenger Deep was the name of his submarine. But I guess the title still works.

Saw that. Most of the press reported that they had found a plastic bag.

There's nowhere on this planet that is free of our garbage.

The press would have reported a plastic bag in any event.
