So the guy behind the blockbusters Titanic and avatar is just wrapped up his latest project traveling to the deepest point on planet earth.
James Cameron took the plunge over the weekend into the marianas trench out in the Pacific Ocean he compared the bottom of the -- to an alien world.
I feel like literally the space of one day have gone through the planet.
And come back he may have tiny submarine that had him take Ted take it -- to them -- nearly seven miles to reach the ocean floor we found basically nothing.
The pressure is so intense we're told it's like three -- resting on one of your toes.
Everyone's experience that right.
The famous director came back in one piece thankfully this is video from National Geographic which is partly owned by our parent company.
James Cameron has had dozens of deep -- trips including more than thirty.
To just view the wreckage of the Titanic.
Certainly we need more on this Trace Gallagher has -- so I didn't find any thing down there right.
I know he didn't -- but it took about two and a half hours get down in the bottom nine it was supposed to stay down there for about six hours but the sudden started leaking some hydraulic fluid.
And so he cut his trip to three hours he said it was a little bit anxious before -- went into this thing but once he got in the sub the adrenaline kicked in and the fear went away.
As you said he didn't really see any sea -- bigger than -- half.
Half an inch and what he did see was very different listen.
Any of the animals that live there.
Are adapted to this extreme pressures this.
They usually -- they have no pigments of them have eyes to see.
-- -- luminous and some of them have no life at all.
It's -- it's completely alien world.
So the next -- they're actually a send down a date submarine to try and tracked a lot more C elected plan by the way to do at least three or four more of these -- -- well how does the submarine work.
Well well I mean look this thing they call -- aid have you if you well vertical torpedoed because it goes down so fast is two and a half stories high and this thing is decked out all all kinds of high definition cameras and lights because they are after all trying to.
Create a movie out of this -- a TV documentary the sub also has a robotic claw on something called a -- -- that actually sucks in the sea life and some biological samples.
And all of that pressure.
Actually squeezes the size of the sub listen.
This fear that I -- actually actually shrinks.
The -- that I look out that he pushes him.
Toward me under 161000 pounds per square inch of pressure.
He had to be a little 43.
Inch compartment and he said to do that he trained with a lot of yoga and a lot of running Shelton Trace Gallagher in Los Angeles tonight Trace thank you --
