James Cameron Becomes First to Solo to Ocean's Deepest Point

By March 25, 2012

Follow me on:

Today, filmmaker and National Geographic Explorer James Cameron became the first person to take a solo voyage to the Challenger Deep - the deepest point in the ocean.  Cameron took the 2.5 hour descent aboard his 24-submersible Deepsea Challenger and spent several hours exploring the sea floor before returning to the surface.  I'm excited to see footage of what he saw - apparently, the sub could light up its surroundings with an 8-foot tower of LEDs (imagine the surprise of those marine creatures!).

How about you - if you could, would you travel to the deepest part of the ocean?
