Deep Deep Diving Staring “James Cameron”

James Cameron (Director of Avatar, Titanic) has made an historic dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, the deepest point on earth on March 25th 2012.  After eight years and several millions of dollars later he made the solo excursion to the bottom in less than three minutes in the custom made Deepsea Challenger Submarine.  Cameron is only the third person to visit the bottom of the trench in the last 52 years.  His decent was near 7 miles deep, a whopping 35,756 feet straight down.  Finally, Cameron has captured the first visible images of the deepest point on earth and is currently editing the video to release a full length 3D movie.  How amazing is that?  You can learn for about this historic event at http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2012/03/120325-james-cameron-mariana-trench-challenger-deepest-returns-science-sub
