What are the deepest points in Earth’s oceans?

There are deep spheres on our planet that seem almost alien. Translucent fish dart back and forth while strange flower-like crinoids sway in the water. But of all the undersea canyons and trenches out there, what are the deepest, darkest places in each of the five oceans of the world?
