The Mariana Trench

James Cameron is best known as the director of “Titanic,” '”Avatar,” “Terminator,” and several other films which made millions at the box-office. Now the man has made into the history books by being only the second man to reach Earth's deepest point.

Cameron used a specially designed submarine to dive nearly seven miles into the Mariana Trench. The Mariana Trench at 35,756 feet deep is the world’s deepest ocean trench and is estimated to be 120 times larger than the Grand Canyon. The first and only time anyone dove to those depths was in 1960 and back then, they only stayed for 20 min. Cameron will stay down there for 6 hours!

Say what you want about the man’s movie, but you can’t dispute the fact that he has balls. At that depth, even a simple engineering mistake would destroy the small submarine and kill him. Good luck to him!
