James Cameron's Sub Makes It To The Base Of The Mariana Trench

Is there nowhere that social media can’t reach? Not content with being the first solo human being to explore the very depths of the ocean, James Cameron’s also the first man to tweet from down there.

The telecommunications aspect of the Deepsea Challenger is being handled by Telstra, and it’s obviously working. About 10 minutes ago, Cameron tweeted the following:

“Just arrived at the ocean’s deepest pt. Hitting bottom never felt so good. Can’t wait to share what I’m seeing w/ you @DeepChallenge”
