In other words, 0.5080 kilometers is 0.046597 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 21.4610 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 10.902 km below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
It's about one-twentieth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 22 times 0.5080 kilometers.
