This is the one-man sub, I presume?

I am biting my talons here.....I do not like the 'Challenger' name association...   :o


"Mention James Cameron and the first thing most people probably think of is Avatar, or perhaps the 1997 mega-blockbuster, disaster / romance mashup Titanic. Most people probably don't think of him as a world record-setting submarine diver — but after an expedition Cameron made on Tuesday, that's exactly what he is. The filmmaker took his custom deep-sea submarine, the Deepsea Challenger, deeper than any other human has ever gone on a solo mission — 5.1 miles straight down, in fact. It turns Cameron's just getting started: next, he plans to reach the Mariana Trench's Challenger Deep, a place so deep that humans haven't visited it in over 52 years. It turns out that after filming Titanic, Cameron became quite an avid diver and has spent the better part of the last 10 years on deep-sea exploration.

"Thanks to the massive technology upgrades that have taken place since 1960, Cameron will get to spend about six hours on the ocean's floor, compared to only 20 minutes spent by the earlier expedition. Naturally, the entire expedition will be filmed: the 24-foot tall submarine has been outfitted with numerous 3D high-definition cameras and an eight foot tall array of LED lighting. There's a lot of other technology on board that's more focused on keeping passengers alive than documenting anything — due to the 16,000 pound-per-square-inch pressure that exists at the bottom of the ocean, the submarine will actually compress by about two and a half inches during the planned 6.8-mile decent. National Geographic has an in-depth look at Cameron's planned voyage, so check it out if yo'ure interested in learning more about one of the earth's final frontiers."

Many ocean-going exploration vessels have "challenger" in the name.

Thank you for the reassurance, ma Toruk Makto.   I just don't want anything to happen to him, especially now...and I think the major reason for his voyage is Avatar 2, kefyak?

Yes, good luck to you, JC, and stay safe!
What he's doing with this DeepSea Challenge is really awesome.  :)

James Cameron has a history of scientific exploration of the oceans for the sake of science itself. With that said, it is almost certain that a lot of the footage he will get will find a part in the next two Avatar films.

I understand that the pressures are so great at that depth that there are no vertebrate life cause it would crush the calcium right out of the bones.

 Irayo, ma Swoka ikran. I can't wait to see the images of a place that is every bit as lethal to unprotected humans as anywhere in Space  loaded upon the internet.

Our Na'vi creator and now a Guinness record setter for deepest solo sub dive... I would wager anyways.

I do not think I could get into a 'can' and do that... I am by no means claustrophobic... but wow. So amazing. I am eager to see images.

Here's the National Geographic site coverage!

James Cameron Completes Record-Breaking Mariana Trench Dive

GREAT FIND, ma Vur'evenge!

From your link:

"Retired U.S. Navy Capt. Don Walsh, who descended to Challenger Deep in 1960, said he was pleased to hear that Cameron had reached the underwater valley safely.

"That was a grand moment, to welcome him to the club," Walsh, said in a telephone interview from the sub-support ship.

"There're only three of us in it, and one of them—late Swiss engineer Jacques Piccard—"is dead. Now it's just Jim and myself."

Expedition physician Joe MacInnis called Cameron’s successful descent today "the ultimate test of a man and his machine."

After breaching the ocean surface, the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER was first spotted by a helicopter owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, a longtime Cameron friend. Allen was on the scene for the historic dive and posted live updates of the event on Twitter from aboard his yacht, the Octopus, which is providing backup support for the mission."

From the same link:

"Perhaps referring to his friend's most recent movie, expedition physician MacInnis called Cameron a real-world "avatar."

"He's down there on behalf of everybody else on this planet," he said. "There are seven billion people who can’t go, and he can. And he’s aware of that."
