Susan Avery and DEEPSEA CHALLENGER

A Capitol Sub

In March 2012, explorer and filmmaker James Cameron piloted his custom-designed and -built submersible DEEPSEA CHALLENGER to the deepest spot in the ocean—Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench. He recently donated the vehicle and related technology to WHOI to ensure that his team's technical breakthroughs would find their way into new generations of underwater vehicles. Today, the sub arrived in Woods Hole after a two-week trip across the country sponsored by Rolex that included several stops for students and the public to see the sub and culminated with testimony before a Senate sub-committee by Cameron and WHOI President and Director Susan Avery (pictured) about the importance of ocean exploration to society.
