and his submarine ‘Deepsea Challenger’ have created history – it was a 12-ton lime green sub and he has travelled 7-miles into the belly of the deepest ocean. Needless to say, he has been thrilled at the sights around him after the 2-hour journey.
He must be feeling elated as Captain Nemo did with his sub Nautilus in the ‘20,000 leagues under the sea’ novel of Jules Verne.
The location where James Cameron chose for his dive was the Mariana Trench situated 200-miles southwest of the Pacific Island of Guam.
He has been an avid oceanographer since his childhood days and has to his edit 72 deep-sea submersible dives – 33 of these were to the wreckage of the Titanic, his 1997 hit movie!!
It is a pioneering work for James Cameron, the famous Hollywood director who has given us movies like the ‘Titanic’ and ‘Avatar’.
James has gone where no one has ventured so far.
He plans to stay there for at least 6-hours and wants to bring back samples of vegetation from the ocean bed for scientific research.
