Watch Footage from James Cameron's Epic Ocean Dive

This week filmmaker and adventurer James Cameron made history by being the first man in over 50 years to travel the seven miles down to the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean, the Mariana Trench. He made the trip by himself in a custom made submarine designed by Cameron and a bunch of engineers that knew how to take Cameron's vision and ideas and make it a reality. The trip is all part of a 3D documentary that Cameron is developing with National Geographic, called Deepsea Challenge. The first footage from this dive has been revealed, and it's pretty awe-inspiring. I wish I had the means to be able to do something like this, this looks like it was so freakin' cool! 

Cameron spent more than three hours on the ocean floor basically looking at an alien planet full of questions and answers. It so awesome that Cameron is using his means to further our knowledge of the world that we live in. Of course, he's also doing it as research for his next two Avatar films that will be set in the ocean. 

Watch the videos below, and let us know what you think of Cameron's deep sea adventure.
