James Cameron reaches deepest spot on Earth

Hollywood icon James Cameron has made it to Earth's deepest point.
 
The director of "Titanic," "Avatar" and other films used a specially designed submarine to dive nearly seven miles, completing his journey a little before 8 a.m. Monday local time, according to Stephanie Montgomery of the National Geographic Society...

The scale of the trench is hard to grasp -- it's 120 times larger than the Grand Canyon and more than a mile deeper than Mount Everest is tall...

And if his submarine were to spring a leak at that depth, he'd be squashed before he could even say "squashed".


For example:

Crab gets sucked into 1/4-inch slit in deep sea pipe.

From the article:

Quote
"Just arrived at the ocean's deepest [point]. Hitting bottom never felt so good. Can't wait to share what I'm seeing [with] you," Cameron said in the tweet.

What in the good hell?  Am I to understand that he actually managed to send a tweet from 7 miles underwater but I cannot manage to get cell reception on my campus? I'm bitter.
