Cameron Dives Into A "Deepsea Challenge"

Filmmaker and 'National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence' James Cameron ("Terminator") has announced he will attempt to reach the world’s deepest point, the 'Mariana Trench', nearly 
7 miles (11.2 km) beneath the ocean’s surface, within the next few weeks.

Cameron’s dive into the canyon in a specially designed submersible marks the launch of "Deepsea Challenge", a joint scientific project by Cameron, the National Geographic Society and Rolex to conduct deep-ocean research and exploration " expand our knowledge and understanding of these largely unknown parts of the planet..."

Cameron’s Cameron/Pace Group, a supplier of 3D technologies and production support services, has provided the capability to document the historic expedition in high-resolution 3D.
