PACIFIC OCEAN (WVUE) - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is going into unknown territory at the bottom of the Marianas Trench and bringing back some amazing photos in the process.
On April 20, NOAA scientists working on the Okeanos Explorer sent out a robot to search the floor of the Mariana Trench. The Deep Discoverer robot will search through the deepest spot on the surface of the Earth and the NOAA will upload their discoveries every day.

The Mariana Trench is the deepest spot on the surface of the Earth. In fact, many scientists say we know more about the surface of Mars than we do about the trench.

The Deepwater Exploration of the Marianas trench will continue until July 10.
