Time Out says

Whether he’s submerging actors in abandoned power plants (The Abyss) or teaching them to hold their breath for five minutes (Avatar: The Way of Water), it’s clear that James Cameron kind of has a thing for shooting underwater. But the big-budget director also has a deep personal connection with the sea: He’s been down to the wreckage of the Titanic and even became the first person to embark on a solo expedition to the deepest point of the Mariana Trench. Now, that 12-ton, 24-foot-tall submersible will be on view at the Natural History Museum as part of a pop-up installation about how exactly one navigates their way seven miles deep into the Pacific Ocean.
