James Cameron twitters from the deep

The famous movie creator (Titanic, Terminator, Aliens and Avatar) James Cameron has now reached the final deepth in the world, and he did tweet from 10 898 feet down.

Just arrived at the ocean’s deepest pt. Hitting bottom never felt so good. Can’t wait to share what I’m seeing w/ you

Only two men have been down in the Marianergrave before Cameron went down. James Cameron reached the bottom after two hours and 36 minutes and then he did start to study the deepth for several hours and took samples for testing. The journey to the surface took about 70 minutes.

Last time someone reached the bottom of the Challeneger deepth was in 1960 and it took Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh about five hours to reach the bottom and they stayed only for 20 minutes and their submarine pulled up so much sand so it was hard to se anything
