James Cameron The New King Of The Ocean Bottom

Say what you will about the quality of James Cameron’s films, as an individual his ambition knows no limits. Unlike most who use Twitter to post mundane comments about life, Cameron only uses the medium when he has something worth saying. So it came as a surprise when he returned to Twitter after almost a year to post a message on March 25, 2012.

At around 3:10PM PST Cameron tweeted that he “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.” The Twitter page for Cameron’s National Geographic sponsored sub, tweeted “@JimCameron is the first person in history to solo dive to the deepest place on Earth, a record 35,756ft/10,898m” — not quite 7 miles down.

The Pulse: Commanding a specially constructed 12-ton submarine – you can afford those if you have the two highest-grossing films of all time – Cameron will no doubt have some great deep sea footage from the dive. The submarine has four HD cameras to capture life from below. You have to respect a guy like Cameron who wants to push the limits of what is indeed possible. We’ve gone to space, but mysteries down below still exist. While some may be anticipating a sequel to Avatar (frankly, I’d like to see another True Lies), a forthcoming underwater documentary follow-up to Aliens of the Deep may be a better watch overall.
