After diving to the deepest part of the ocean, filmmaker James Cameron says the last frontier on Earth looks a lot like another planet: desolate and foreboding.
Cameron on Monday described his three hours on the bottom of the Marianas Trench, nearly 7 miles (11 kilometers) down in a dark freezing and alien place. He is the only person to dive there solo, using a submarine he helped design. He is the first person to reach that depth, 35,576 feet (10,898 meters), since it was initially explored in 1960.
Cameron says he worried about being too busy with exploration duties to take in just how amazing the place was. That happened to Apollo astronauts.
So he says he took time to stare at the moon-like barren surface and appreciate how alien it is.
