March 26, 2012 — In a state-of-the-art submersible, National Geographic explorer-in-residence and filmmaker James Cameron reached the deepest point of the Mariana Trench, breaking a world record for the deepest solo dive. He spent about three hours gliding through the icy darkness on the one-man sub he helped design, which withstood pressure of eight tons per square inch at the 35,576-foot (nearly seven miles) depth in the western Pacific Ocean.
