Dropping Science: How Deep are the Deepest Oceans?

Randall Munroe has produced several scientific illustrations that aim to help tiny human brains cope with mega concepts. This time he’s tackled the concept of depth by producing this gorgeous chart of the world’s oceans (and associated deep things).

The chart allows you to see a) Just how little we know about the oceans, b) Just how awesome whales are compared to submarines and c) Just how devious James Cameron is.

You can view a full size version of the chart HERE.
