Kathy came out from a 35,810-foot dive to the Challenger Deep as confirmed by EYOS Expeditions, a company that was in charge of logistics of the mission.

With that, she has become the first woman to set both records. It should, however, be noted that the Challenger Deep is the lowest among the oceans across the globe, New York Times reports.

Kathy and Victor L Vescovo, who is an explorer funding the project, spend one and half hours at their destination.

They started to descend into the seabed after they had captured images of the ocean. Kathy was part of the first set of astronauts that included women in 1984, making her the first American woman to walk in space.
