National Geographic Explorer James Cameron Embarks on a Dive to the Ocean’s Deepest Point

National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence and Filmmaker James Cameron plans to soon dive in a specially designed submarine to the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean, earth’s deepest point. No human has attempted such a dive since 1960.
