Lowest human-made and natural points in the world

This statistic shows the ten lowest points on earth. The world's lowest point is the Kola Borehole in Russia with a depth of 40,230 feet. The Kola Borehole is a result of a Soviet Union's drilling project which started in 1970 and was abandoned in 1989 due to temperatures that reached 180 degrees Celsius. The only purpose for this project was to drill as deep as possible into the Earth's crust.
