    Link: Will Richard Branson Do The Mariana Trench? - Billionaire Branson wants to be the first to conquer the Mariana Trench, but director James Cameron wants to do it too.

    "Only two explorers have made the 11km journey down to the Pacific Ocean`s deepest point" and "Billionaire Branson wants to be the first to conquer the Mariana Trench". Confused. Explain.

    The last two to do it got lucky, the glass on their bathyscaphe the Trieste cracked and fortunately it held. If the glass hadn`t held, they`d have died instantly.

    Impossible to be the first to conquer it, when 2 others already went there 50 years ago.

    What something like 3 or so new species were discovered on camera during the whole BP thing, imagine if they can get some decent cameras and time down that deep, who knows what actually lives down there?

    "Only two explorers have made the 11km journey down to the Pacific Ocean`s deepest point" and "Billionaire Branson wants to be the first to conquer the Mariana Trench". Confused. Explain"

    The key work is "conquer" The two people who went before him just went to observe and measure while Branson and Cameron are looking to distribute small pox infested blankets.

    I hope Branson`ll be wearing a Bell & Ross Hydromax because at least his watch should survive when he does a Fosset.

    Branson won`t do it. It`s too dangerous, plus the Mariana Trench detritus is fresh out of super models.
