And...hes back up now, for some reason he didnt spend as long on the bottom as planned, but who can blame him?  No news yet to say what was seen either, but that can wait,  just glad he made it home gain!

Perhaps the Kraken chased him away?

Or maybe it was a Megalodon?

What an adventure of a lifetime for James Cameron, not to compete with the first civilian in space travel: Dennis Tito paid part of his billion-dollar fortune to ride once in the Russian space program a decade ago. We all wish to travel waitless 100km above our planet and get to the deepest spots of the earth. The point is the rich and famous may afford the uber-pricey expensive trips of our lives, they opened the doors to a new private travel industry above and beyond.

What a great achievement from a non-government sponsored mission. Lets hope this is the start of loads more.

As Ive been following this story from the start, may I explain why no youtube vids?..so far?

His sub actually leaked fluids, hence why he wasnt down as long as planned, and wasnt much to see, as you may expect at that depth

snip:

"Emerging from his cramped "pilot sphere" after surfacing, Cameron flashed two thumbs up, then described what he'd seen.

"It was bleak," he said. "It looked like the moon."

As for life-forms, he said, "I didn't see a fish. ... I didn't find anything that looked alive to me, other than a few [shrimplike] amphipods in the water," he said from aboard the research vessel Mermaid Sapphire. (See pictures of giant amphipods.)

"I didn't feel like I got to a place where I could take interesting geology samples or found anything interesting biologically."

This may be, in part, because a hydraulic fluid leak convinced Cameron to end the mission after about three hours. Previous projections had him surveying and sampling Challenger Deep and its life-forms for as long as six hours.

"I saw a lot of hydraulic oil come up in front of the port. The port got coated with it," he explained.

Cameron had planned to collect rock and animal samples with the sub's mechanical arm, but with the leak, "I couldn't pick anything up, so I began to feel like it was a moment of diminishing returns to go on."

Finally, he said, "I lost a lot of thrusters. I lost the whole starboard side. That's when I decided to come up. I couldn't go any further—I was just spinning in a circle."

and:

“I felt isolated from all humanity,” he told a group of journalists participating in a telephone press conference. “I felt I had gone to another planet and come back all in one day. It was like arriving at another world.”

“It’s a vast frontier down there,” said Cameron, who described the area as “lunar, desolate and isolated.”

“The bottom of the Trench was completely blank. I had the idea that life would adapt to the deepest places. But I didn’t see any fish or sea monsters.”

well he says it was a life long dream, was influence early on by Jacques Coustea and all that

Mind you so was I, always wanted to be a deep sea diver as a kid from watching Jacques

But think how creepy that was tho, 7 miles down and something starts leaking!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!

bad time and bad place to have a leak...

(the sub that is.. he prolly just had a massive poop))
