There are certain fish

that actually will hover

over the reef

in a vertical position.

So, nature provided an example

of the fact that its not crazy to think that a submersible

can move through the water

in an upright position.

Deepsea Challenger

is not a stunt vehicle

to just go down

and set a depth record.

its designed from the ground up as a science platform.

Theres a hydraulic manipulator arm for taking samples.

A sample tray

in the science door.

There are push cores

for taking sediment.

A payload bay

for instruments.

And two 3D cameras, one on the boom and one on the arm.

Every single thing on this vehicle has to be built from scratch

to withstand

the crushing pressure.

its just this kind of

ragtag group

working in this

little tiny shop

next to a plumbing supply

place on that side

and a plywood supply

place on that side.

You know, nobody even knows

what were doing in here.

And one of the most amazing things about this vehicle

is that it shrinks over two inches during the dive from pressure.

Thats enough to shear

aircraft grade bolts.

Yeah, its still got

to go in quite a way.

(James) So the sphere is actually held onto the sub by straps.

But were also fighting

the pressure of time.

Our expedition ship

just arrived

and were supposed to leave in less than three weeks, but we dont have a sub.

its still in pieces

all over the shop.

How big a problem is that?

I need to know when were going to see some action on that sub,

so we can start doing

some integration.

If you're saying

3rd of January

were going

to have it wired out,

were still weeks away

from getting integration done.

(James) We have to have an integration schedule.

I want that schedule put up on the wall right over there, okay?

Andrew Wight

Andrew Wight (14 November 1959 – 4 February 2012) was an Australian screenwriter and producer best known for his 2011 film Sanctum. He produced over 45 films including television documentaries, live television specials and 3D IMAX films. His credits include Ghosts of the Abyss, Aliens of the Deep and Expedition: Bismarck. Andrew Wight was honored with the Australian Geographic Society Spirit of Adventure Awards in 1989.Andrew grew up on the family farm "Tarqua" near Harrow in Western Victoria, and attended Hamilton College as a boarder between 1972 and 1977. It was here that he developed a taste for caving, exploring the nearby Byaduk Caves network of lava caves, under the direction of his Chemistry teacher, accompanied by a few other close school friends. In 1988, he eventually went on to attempt a record cave dive in Pannikin Plains Cave on the Nullarbor Plain, where flash floods turned the expedition into a life-or-death adventure. This was captured on film by his support team, and eventually published as Nullarbor Dreaming. This short film launched his career as an international film-maker and culminated in him becoming James Cameron's right-hand man on many 3D and other film projects. Sanctum was inspired by his Nullarbor experience. On 4 February 2012, he was killed in a helicopter crash at Jaspers Brush near the town of Berry in New South Wales, Australia. The crash also claimed the life of American filmmaker Mike deGruy. more…
