Well, if it IS like a KISS concert, than all I can say is: "She wants a rocket ride, She wants a ROCKET RIDE!"
BlackarrowI think anyone interested in the adventure of space exploration ought to appreciate the significance of this achievement. Well done, James Cameron. This is not just dabbling in some minor adventure. This is cutting-edge.
mach3valkyrieFor those of you that haven't seen the actual August 1960 edition of the National Geographic Magazine, I would highly recommend viewing one. There is a lot more visual information not seen on the National Geographic website.

My favorite illustration in the magazine is one showing a scale drawing of the relative separation distance between the Trieste and Wandank (tug) at 500 feet; then stating that an additional 27 feet of paper would be necessary to show the relative separation at maximum depth!

Congratulations to James Cameron and the entire team involved in this project.
(note: the December 1960 National Geographic has the article about Joe Kittinger's highest jump. "The Long, Lonely Leap".)

bwhite1976If Cameron were to be interested in space exploration in the same way that he is with underwater exploration, I have no doubt he would have gone into orbit already. Or would at least soon be getting there through his own innovations and curiosity.
jtheoretI read somewhere that speculates Cameron is interested in doing the Space Adventures lunar mission.
