Cameron Returns From Bottom Of Sea

Director James Cameron has completed his solo dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, seven miles below the Pacific's surface, bringing with him to the surface 3D footage taken by four video cameras mounted on his submersible vessel, the Deepsea Challenger. But, he indicated, there was little to film. "I just sat there looking out the window, looking at this barren, desolate lunar plain, appreciating," he told reporters upon his return. He indicated that he hoped to capture the image of "some strange deep sea monster" or at least tracks of life. But the only living objects he saw, he said, were shrimp-like creatures no bigger than an inch. Perhaps because of the starkness of the surroundings, he cut his trip short, spending only three hours on the sea floor, although he could have spent six. Another reason may have been related to the malfunctioning of the vessel's robotic arms with which he had hoped to scoop up soil samples and bring them back to the surface for scientific study. Nevertheless, he said, he plans to return. "I see this as the beginning," Cameron said. "It's not a one-time deal and then moving on. This is the beginning of opening up this new frontier.".
