7 Miles

“Only three humans have made it to the deepest point on the planet, 10,989 meters down. Movie director and explorer James Cameron did it in 2012. Incredibly, the other two men made the trip together in 1960: Don Walsh, a U.S. Navy officer, and Swiss ocean engineer Jacques Piccard. Follow the link as Walsh describes the final adjustments made to their bathyscaphe, Trieste, during the test dives leading up to the big event, and recounts the excitement and tension he experienced during the dive itself.”

Diving Deeper than any Human Ever Dove
