That's SEVEN MILES DEEP!!!
James Cameron has been wanting to literally hit rock bottom his entire life, and he did it!! He finally did it!!
Plunging 500ft/min in the Deepsea Challenger, the Oscar-winning director found what he describes an "alien, very lunar and desolate" world at the Earth's lowest point.
It took him 2.5 hours to get down there. Then he enjoyed three hours of crazy exploration before a hydraulic leak caused him to ascend sooner than expected. On his way back up, he experienced "one heckuva ride" for 70 minutes!
Watch the exciting video above to get in on the non-fiction action URself!!!

Children! What are you doing?
These little kids must be channeling Finding Nemo's Dory because algae or not, they just keep swimming.
The green algae–known as enteromorpha prolifera–continues to spread along the waters of China's eastern coastline of Qingdao.
Though it's not poisonous, it can hinder the fishing industry and tourism.
Um, yah… It's definitely not a tourist attraction.
Could you imagine? 'Come one! Come all! Come see the pot lookin-like beaches!!! Five bucks a picture.'
We hope they get some clean water and soon!
