I'd like to see what he finds down there. 35,000 feet is hella deep.
next to some of the Caves on this planet ... Deep Sea holds the most secrets on Earth
If I remember correctly, we haven't explored nearly close to all of the ocean life on this planet.
I would love to see some new discoveries of species and maybe even deep water environments. Science is awesome.
Is this for his sequel to avatar? I heard he was waiting to get down there because he was going to use footage down there for the movie.
AP is reporting that he just resurfaced.
Ahhhhhhhhh, to be rich.....
Hope he found something interesting.
I have just read this on the news reports. Incredible. Agree with Heilage - science is indeed amazing, and absolutely extraordinary. It will be fascinating to be able to see what he saw and found at that depth - the dimensions alone are almost unimaginable.
I can only assume that whatever sort of creature has evolved to deal with such conditions will be astonishing to behold.
Cthulhu. Cameron went and woke him him, and now we're all doomed.
I've always wanted to explore the deep ocean. It's so surreal down there.. So beautiful.
Cameron should have taken Celion Dion with him and just left her there. Her song ruined Titanic more than he did.
I hope he buried all his plans for future movies there.
Lol, no! That movie would've never been the same without that song. That's right up there with Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You".
PS: I am not a Celine Fan. For real, I'm not.
Sounds like being there was more exciting than seeing it. I guess its no surprise that Titanic 3D returns to theaters this week. Cameron, if anything, is deft in business.
It is the 100 year anniversary of the sinking.
can see the seeds of his next movie
"deep water titanic"
Titanic 2, the search for missing treasure. Starting Jack a 115 year old ocean zombie.
On April 14th it will be.
Here's another interesting bit of factoid...
So far 3 people have spent about 2.5 hours at the bottom of the ocean.... a "mere" 11 km down. "Merely" because about a dozen people have spent about 80 hours on the moon, about 400,000 km up.
Everything is relative, eh?
My bad, I thought this was a thread on a Kardashian vagina.
It's nice to see James Cameron doing something that I can root for again.
He was a hero of mine growing up.
Very interesting. I know that the moon is more explored, but these numbers really put it in perspective.
You should know better, nothing about that woman could be considered 'deep'.
I'm really interested in seeing footage of the very bottom of the trench, even if there's not much around.... just kind of curious to see what earth's basement really looks like.
A lot of old baseball cards that earth's mom thought were worthless and some cans of soup.
Some interesting footage here of the bottom.
I'm glad he made it there, and made it back alive. It just goes to show that James Cameron's ego knows no bounds.
"Awww s***, I forgot to charge my camera."
Where's my aquacopter?
Back in the 1960s (when virtually anything seemed possible) pundits confidently predicted that by the year 2000 sea farms would be able to feed the world a dozen times over while brightly lit cities under huge glass domes would spread across the sea bed connected by monorails running in giant acrylic tubes and supplied by submarine freighters and tankers. With this sort of future ahead, the General Motors Futurama underwater hotel model at the 1964 New York World's Fair seemed almost prosaic.
Sited at a depth of 10,000 feet and with the quest capacity of a the largest resorts, the Futurama hotel was a series of giant tear drops suspended into an undersea canyon with two-storey tall windows covering each tear drop to provide the guests with an unobstructed panoramic view of the local scenerywhich would be fantastic if it wasn't as dark as a coal mine 10,000 feet down. But at least there was a fleet of aquacopters to scoot around in. (source)
A decade earlier, the Russians had dreams of an underwater hotel/ cruise ship, as depicted the 3rd photo below (photos nos. 1&2 are of the GM Futurama models).
