An incredible ocean research vessel scheduled to begin construction in late 2013!!
Similar to a space ship, the SeaOrbiter is a craft that's both above and underwater designed to accommodate 18 - 22 crew members to observe, listen to and study marine life 24/7 on prolonged missions.
It's planned mission is explore strange new waters... and to allow scientists and others a residential yet mobile research station positioned under the oceans' surface. The station will have laboratories, workshops, living quarters and a pressurized deck to support divers and submarines.
