James Cameron goes to the deep

One of the most famous film directors, creator of such blockbusters as Titanic and Avatar, James Cameron, has announced to the world his plan to visit the deepest place on Earth in the coming weeks! He is going to do it on board of the “State of the art” boat, a vessel created in strict secrecy in Australia.

If the mission is successful, it will be only the second time a human has been in the oceanic depths that extend around the Mariana Trench, located 11km below the water’s surface.

Deepsea Challenger – that’s the name of the green, cylindrical creation of technologists working for Cameron. There is room on board for 1 daredevil to spend 6 hours exploring. The name of the boat comes from the English name of the place the director is aiming at – Challenger Deep. In addition to the amazing experience, during his journey, Cameron will collect research material, which he will deliver to the surface.

If nothing thwarts his plans, he will be the first man in over 50 years to see the Mariana Trench with his own eyes. In 1960. The first and last to do so were Don Wlash and Jaques Piccard, who were lowered to the bottom in the Trieste bathyscaphe.

Cameron and his team, decided to announce their plans, carried by a wave of enthusiasm, after several very successful dives around New Guinea where they dived to a depth of 8km!

The depths of the seas and oceans are the last place we know almost nothing about. Mysterious, unexplored and not allowing man to do much. Today we stand at the threshold, beyond which the blank pages of the history of the deep will begin to be filled.

Cameron may be the first, but he is not the only one with a sweat-inducing project to reach where knowledge ends and cognition and virgin exploration begins. We don’t know if this plan will succeed and if it will bring breakthroughs for humanity, but you can just feel something incredible in the air.
