Behold the Deepsea Challenger, a one-man submersible craft that in a few weeks will take filmmaker James Cameron into the deepest point in the ocean – Challenger Deep in the Pacific’s Mariana Trench – as only the third human to visit that place since Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh back in 1960. Millionaire adventurer Chris Welsh is also planning do go down there later this year, in his sexy sub “Scarlett”.
