James Cameron Gets DEEP!

| Filed under: Film FlickersAustraliastic



James Cameron is preparing to dive into the deepest part of the ocean to do research for his upcoming sequel to Avatar!

He has already commissioned Australian engineers to craft a deep sea submarine so he can reach the bottom of the Mariana Trench, 11,000 meters down in the western Pacific!

The sequel will be set in the sea of Pandora.

The Mariana Trench has been visited by man only once in a vessel called the Trieste and it took five hours to descend to the floor by Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh back in 1960!

No humans have been that deep since!

Cameron says:

“We are building a vehicle to do the dive. It's about half-completed in Australia. We are using lightweight but very strong carbon composite materials and other advanced technologies very different from the Trieste, which was a hollowed-out cannonball.

“We believe we have solved most of the technological challenges to returning to the Mariana Trench. The real trick now is to make such vessels lighter, cheaper and more attractive to industry.”

Pretty ambitious — and fascinating, too!

Plus, the man can afford it!

    As much as his ego is annoying, this is fucking awesome - If he can do this, he truly is "King of the World" and I for one would give anything to be aboard that vessel - read Steve Alten's "Meg" and the sequels…

    Can't wait for the design to fail and the extreme pressure to pulp that self-righteous prick and save us all from having to see any more avaturds.
