For the sequel to Avatar, set in the oceans of Pandora, James Cameron is set to dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, the deepest geographic feature known on Earth.
According to The Australian, the director has already ordered the Australian engineers deep-diving vehicles capable of diving to such depths. Cameron is going to equip them with special 3D cameras created by him, which will allow them to capture in unprecedented quality the world existing in conditions of monstrous pressures and eternal darkness.
Recall that a person only once managed to dive into the Mariana Trench. In 1960, US Navy Lieutenant Don Walsh and explorer Jacques Piccard made a record dive in the Trieste submersible. His instruments recorded a depth of 10,918 meters.
Researchers have confirmed that even in such extreme conditions, life in the ocean exists. Since then, the Mariana Trench has only been explored with automated stations.
