James Cameron's Journey to the Bottom of the Sea The director of Titanic and Avatar has now been where only two others have been before -- to the deepest place in the ocean, 35,000 feet below the surface, lower than Mount Everest is high. James Cameron did it alone and felt "complete isolation from all humanity." Douglas Bartlett, marine biologist at the Scripps Institution at the University of San Diego in La Jolla, is chief scientist for the Deepsea Challenge program, sponsored by Rolodex and the National Geographic Society .
