In other news, the first American woman, Kathy Sullivan, 68, to walk space achieved another feat by being the first woman to reach the deepest spot in the ocean.
Kathy came out from a 35,810-foot dive to the Challenger Deep as confirmed by EYOS Expeditions, a company that was in charge of logistics of the mission.
With that, she has become the first woman to set both records. It should, however, be noted that the Challenger Deep is the lowest among the oceans across the globe.
Kathy and Victor L Vescovo, who is an explorer funding the project, spent one and half hours at their destination.
