Plastic waste has been discovered on a record-breaking dive to the depths of the Pacific Ocean's Mariana Trench.

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.

Vescovo, the Dallas-based co-founder of Insight Equity Holdings, a private equity fund, found the manmade material on the ocean floor and is trying to confirm that it is plastic, said Stephanie Fitzherbert, a spokeswoman for Vescovo's Five Deeps Expedition.

While discovering plastic in the ocean's depths isn't new, scientists will now begin testing the creatures collected to see if they contain microplastics. The expedition also filmed a weird creature called a spoon worm for the first time at hadal death (7,000 meters or 22,966 feet).

They also collected samples of brightly-coloured rocky outcrops from the seabed.

Vescovo and his team, in a submersible built to handle the pressure of the deep ocean, made five dives to the bottom of the trench.

"It's nearly indescribable how excited all of us are about achieving what we just did", Vescovo said.

Third ever time humans have made it to bottom of the Mariana Trench - and what do they see? "This submarine and its mother ship. took marine technology to a ridiculously higher new level by diving-rapidly and repeatedly-into the deepest, harshest, area of the ocean".

Victor Vescovo and his submarine "The Limiting Factor" are recovered after completing the deepest dive in history.

Aaron Rodgers Confirms Cameo On 'Game of Thrones'
The self-proclaimed "King of the North" teased the appearance last week when he said "Episode 5 should be good" on Twitter. After the episode aired, fans shared Rodgers' cameo on social media - but not everyone agreed with the call.

These conditions also made it challenging to capture footage - the Five Deeps expedition has been followed by Atlantic Productions for a documentary for the Discovery Channel.

A robotic lander photographs the creatures in the deep Mariana Trench and the submersible in the background.

He spent four hours exploring the bottom of the trench in his submersible, built to withstand the enormous pressure of the deep.

"So far, we've made up something like 150,000 square kilometers of deep sea floor now - and we're only halfway through it".

The Five Deeps dive to Challenger Deep in the Pacific Ocean broke a new record.

The deepest deep-sea dive ever may have just found them, the BBC reports.

Canadian filmmaker James Cameron was the last to visit the location in 2012 in his submarine, when he reached a depth of 10,908 metres.

His voyage took place in a submarine called The Limiting Factor, which is how Mr Vescovo is able to explore some of the most remote places on the planet. There is also growing evidence that they are carbon sinks, playing a role in regulating the Earth's chemistry and climate. The pressure at the bottom of the ocean is equal to about 50 jumbo jets piled on top of a person, according to BBC News.
