Deep sea: Director Cameron dives to the Mariana Trench

James Cameron has dived to the deepest point on the world's oceans. Before the Titanic director, only two people visited the Mariana Trench, which is almost 11 kilometers deep.

Titanic -Director James Cameron dived with a special submarine to the deepest point of the world's oceans. Cameron was the first person to dive alone in a submarine into the western Pacific Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench. There, around 500 kilometers southwest of the island of Guam, the 57-year-old Canadian collected data and samples for hours and filmed the deep-sea world.

With his U-Bot, the Deepsea Challenger , it took Cameron 2 hours and 36 minutes to descend to 10,898 meters. The seven-meter-long submarine is equipped with a sediment collector, a robotic gripper arm, a suction gun for collecting small deep-sea inhabitants and various sensors for measuring temperature, salinity and water pressure, for example. It only took Cameron 70 minutes to surface.

Before him, only the Swiss deep-sea explorer Jacques Piccard and the American Don Walsh had dived to a depth of almost eleven kilometers in 1960. "The deep sea trenches are the last unexplored frontier of our planet," said Cameron before his dive trip.

The 57-year-old is considered a deep-sea fan and has dived several thousand meters deep dozen of times. He also had the wreckage of the Bismarck Visited the North Atlantic and filmed a documentary about the German battleship sunk by the British Royal Navy in World War II.
