Today, those of us who were unable to go on location to the Florida Keys are given the unique opportunity to hang out with the aquanaut team on their final mission to the Aquarius habitat. The aquanauts are giving us the ‘ultimate virtual tour’ from their laptop while answering questions from a panel of six about living and conducting science 60 ft. undersea. Join us right now and ask the aquanauts a question real-time on the National Geographic Google+ page!
Remember the movie Armageddon? NASA is preparing for the exact scenario... 60 ft. underwater at Aquarius. (PHOTO)
DJ Roller, producer/cinematographer for Liquid Pictures and OWOO representative. A crazy shot of DJ flooding his mask yesterday during Mission Aquarius training. Wow.
Because filmmaker Marc Ostrick scuba dove to Aquarius and did not saturate, he will only be able to stay an hour before decompressing and returning to the surface. Photo © Brian Lam.
LIVE INTERVIEW: 3pm EST, July 17 with Dr. Sylvia Earle, Dr. Mark Patterson diving outside Aquarius. The veteran ocean explorers will discuss science and the importance of knowing our oceans.
