James Cameron Reaches Ocean's Deepest Point
This morning, James Cameron arrived at the Mariana Trench's Challenger Deep, the deepest point in the ocean. His depth on arrival: 35,756 feet (10,898 meters). The National Geographic explorer and filmmaker (Titanic, Avatar) reached the bottom after a 2-hour-and-36-minute descent.
Folded into a sub cockpit as cramped as any Apollo capsule, Cameron is now investigating a seascape more alien to humans than the moon. Cameron is only the third person to reach this Pacific Ocean valley southwest of Guam - and the only one to do so solo.The Presurfer
