Defending the Lone Explorer

  • Geoff Rynex

It started with The Abyss. Then a little thing called Titanic. Then a slew of aquatic documentaries. And this past weekend, the ocean-obsessed life of James Cameron finally culminated when the man climbed into a submarine he helped design and set the world record for the deepest journey into the Earth by a single human being.

And as soon as he breached the surface, the haters were there to greet him. “We should have sent a robot,” they said. Our “expendable robot spawn will win every time,” they said. They’re cheaper, faster, stronger…

But they’re not human. They don’t know fear and they don’t know courage—so we’re calling shenanigans.

There’s a reason they don’t say “where no robot has gone before”»
