James Cameron takes Deepsea Challenger to Capitol Hill; pushes for boost in oceans research

James Cameron dove 35,787 feet in the submarine, making him one of three men to actually visit the trench below the Pacific Ocean.

Director James Cameron took on a new role yesterday as an advocate for oceanic research before the Senate of the United States. As funding in all areas of government is being cut, Cameron’s visit to Capitol Hill was an important one for advocates of oceans research.

Oceans research is currently lacking both human and financial resources, which means that fewer existing and emerging scientists and researchers are looking to work in the field.
