Voyage to the Bottom of the Ocean

James Cameron is one of Hollywood's biggest earners. His two films TITANIC and AVATAR grossed billions and Avatar CS MONITOR. His 2010 income was reported to top $250 million and a man with that much money can appease his every whim. The famed director has answered the call of the deep ocean by descending to the wreck of the Titanic and yesterday Cameron dove to the bottom of the Pacific in a submersible torpedo called the Deepsea Challenger.The complete time of the voyage was about seven hours, three of which were spent exploring the unfathomable expanse of the ocean floor some 300 miles southwest of Guam. He popped to the surface without claiming to have discovered the lost ruins of Atlantis. According to the Christian Science Monitor he told reporters, “I just sat there looking out the window, looking at this barren lunar plain and appreciating it."No human has visited the Challenger Deep since the US Trieste in 1960.It is a barren wasteland, but barren can be good and Cameron told BBC News, "I really feel like in one day I've been to another planet and come back."It must be nice to be so rich, but Cameron actually made his fortune by the force of himself.I hope that he had a good time.
