James Cameron Compares Deep Sea to Outer Space in Adventure Tale
James Cameron is all set to roll out his adventure tale Voyage to the Bottom of the Earth. This story is a half-hour documentary that is premiering on the National Geographic Channel tonight.
This is just after a month of release of his record-setting solo dive to the bottom of the ocean, which gained much admiration for him. During his adventure trip on March 26, Cameron used the Deep-sea Challenger a custom-built submersible to dive into the bottom of the sea.
He managed to dive 36,000 feet to the bottom of the Mariana trench - the deepest part of the ocean that had been reached only once before in 1960 by a team of two men. Cameron shared his adventure with reporters via a teleconference call just after the trip and tonight's show is expected to fetch more footage to the adventurous hero.
Cameron shared his experience of diving and shared the conditions he faced during the dive. The sea was unsettled in the days, leading him to dive and to his luck, the weather cleared up in time to make the dive possible.
Don Walsh with Jacques Piccard who made the 1960 dive down to the bottom of the ocean assisted Cameron during the expedition. In fact, he was the last guy to speak to Cameron before the dive and also the first guy to speak to Cameron after the dive.
Patrick Brzeski, The Hollywood Reporter asked Mr. Cameron, what was required for a bigger picture and he was told, “Well, first it means, as governments, whether it's the U. S. or any other government, we've lost our edge when it comes to exploration — whether it's space or unexplored corners of the oceans”.
