James Cameron to be publicly honored with Scripps Nierenberg Prize
Date:5/15/2013

ttom of Challenger Deep on January 23, 1960, and later Cameron's record-breaking solo dive in 2012.

Scripps engineers also pioneered designs in free vehicles, autonomous unmanned diving platforms not connected to a ship by rope or wire, for reaching far into the ocean depths to gather data and samples. Scientists John Isaacs and Frank Snodgrass developed fundamental techniques of free vehicle operations still used today.

"Our present designs utilize new materials, processes, and technologiesall the things you expect to have evolved," said Hardy. "But we owe a lot to these first Scripps trailblazers of undersea robotic systems. We are only just beginning the exploration of the ultra-deep ocean. James Cameron's gift will profoundly accelerate our understanding of the hadal (extremely deep) zone. It's a different Earth down there."

"The generous donation (by James Cameron) will enable the lander system to be brought back into service, helping us to examine the distribution, characteristics, and adaptations of extremophilic microbes in the trenches," said Bartlett. "I am hoping that we can bring back some of the scientists from the DEEPSEA CHALLENGE Expedition for the next deployments and recoveries of this lander, and that we can start off where this expedition ended."
