James Cameron, others to explore the real abyss - Article Photos 3/4

This handout photo, taken in 2009 by the unmanned submersible Nereus, provided by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, shows the flat bottom of the Mariana Trench that took pictures and samples. This image of a stalked anemone on rocks on the edge, but not quite on the bottom of the deepest place on Earth, where director/explorer James Cameron will be diving soon in a one-man sub. Earth's lost frontier is about to be explored firsthand after more than half a century. (AP Photo/Tim Shank, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
