This National Geographic video shows the first footage from James Cameron's historic solo dive to the deepest spot on Earth.
It contains the first footage of his trip, with views of the ocean floor in the Challenger Deep, the area of the Mariana Trench he explored, which is 50 times the size of the Grand Canyon. The video also contains his remarks on the experience.
(In the event that the above doesn't work, you can watch it here.)
