He should have brought a water/pressure-proof TV and shown Avatar to all the fishies.

I don't know what he plans to get from deep oceans. Most of the animals there are white and squishy.

WOW! That is incredible. Although, that tiny space he has to be in... just seeing it makes me feel claustrophobic.

I can tell that you have never flown a Formula one Race plane, or a super high performance sailplane. With the latter, if you are going for an altitude record, you also have an oxygen mask and high altitude cold weather clothing on.

NOBODY lives forever, Mika. I have done some incredibly dangerous things in my life Mika, some of them,in front of my love, Ateyo, but if I was afraid of doing them, then I would NOT have done the LIVING that I did, I just would have "been on the planet".

I guess you could look at the claustrophobia-inspiring space exactly like a link chamber.
If you are concentrating on the wonder and experience that you are interacting with OUTSIDE of the chamber, then the machine becomes/provides an extension on one's one self.

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.
He was by himself? What a badass.
