You'd think that about 36,000 feet under the ocean, in the deepest spot on the planet, you'd expect some quiet and peace...?

Well, you'd think wrong!

The deepest spot on Earth is filled with potential-nightmare-inducing, other worldly noises that will terrify you.

Check out some of the (terrifying) sounds recorded by them in Challenger Deep:
