    James Cameron is conducting final test dives to reach the deepest part of ocean

    http://lightyears.blogs.cnn.com/2012...rts/?hpt=us_c1

    Hes hoping to reach Challenger Deep, the deepest known point in the world's oceans, later this month. The site is part of the Mariana Trench near Guam in the western Pacific.
