There are human footprints on the moon and rovers on Mars, but our deepest oceans remain a mystery. Follow James Cameron and his team through the process of designing, building and deploying the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER, a specially designed, spherical submarine custom-built with cutting edge technology. Their goal: a record-breaking dive to the Challenger Deep, at 35,787 feet, the earth’s deepest point. The haunting, lunar-like landscape of the Mariana Trench and the bizarre, alien-like sea creatures Cameron observes are a reminder that there is still much left to explore on this planet and that we learn exciting things when we push our human boundaries.

Combine this program with your field trip to the museum!

This film is available in 3D.
