On March 25 2012, the DeepSea Challenger, piloted by James Cameron, arrived at the deepest point in the Mariana Trench. How deep you ask? How about 35,756 feet (10,898 meters)!
He was down there for about 6 hours and of course filmed the whole thing. And since James Cameron was involved...I imagine we’ll be seeing an IMAX movie of the whole experience soon.
What I wouldn’t give for an experience like that! Can you imagine that much water on top of you? I get excited when I’m at 100 feet.
