James Cameron sets submarine diving world record

• The Sideshow
Filmmaker James Cameron set the record this week for the world's deepest solo submarine dive and says he next plans to dive even deeper in a matter of weeks.

National Geographic reports that Cameron set the 5.1-mile record on Tuesday, during testing of the submarine Deepsea Challenger off the coast of Papua New Guinea. And with the world record in hand, the Academy Award winning director says he will now travel to the depths of the Mariana Trench in a matter of weeks.
