James Cameron Goes to Great Depths

Sunday, March 25th, James Cameron made history. This was not the kind of history typically associated with the famed filmmaker who’s films include Titanic and Avatar. This time, Mr. Cameron made history for being the first to reach the deepest part of the ocean, know as the Challenger Deep in a single-man sub.

The voyage took over seven years of planning, and the planning proved to be successful as it was the first trip so deep since 1960. With the growth in technology since 1960, Cameron was able to capture much better views and samples of specimen from the area than they were able to during the 1960 voyage.

Cameron was able to film his voyage with 3D video recorders which he hopes to use in a National Geographic special that will show the flora and fauna from the deep sea. Another technological phenomenon Cameron was able to do was to communicate with the world via twitter. Once he reached his lowest point, the entrepreneur tweeted, “Just arrived at the ocean’s deepest pt. Hitting bottom never felt so good. Can’t wait to share what I’m seeing w/ you.”

Hopefully some amazing scenes will be released from this remarkable trip and other entrepreneurs like Cameron continue to push the boundaries of what we are capable of discovering in nature.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your web site.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?

    A small number of my blog readers have complained about my blog not
    operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any solutions to help fix this
    issue?

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in
    which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find
    out how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts
    in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
