    A Spaceship For The Sea This vertical structure will allow scientists to better study the ocean. By Ajai Raj 06.10.2014 The SeaOrbiter Illustration by Jacques Rougerie Scientists know more about the surface of the moon and Mars than they do about our own seafloor. Which helps explain the grand vision of the French architect Jacques Rougerie, who’s designed an ocean-going laboratory that rivals the Starship Enterprise in scope.

    Part submarine, part ocean lab. Powered by solar, wind and wave energy. Created by French architect Jacques Rougerie, the 170 feet-tall SeaOrbiter is set to start building before the end of 2012 as the world’s first vertical vessel to sail for oceanography research.

French architect Jacques Rougerie has designed a cross between a skyscraper and a boat for exploring the unchartered territories of the earth’s oceans. Named SeaOrbiter, the vessel is meant to accommodate a team of 18-22 researchers, who will be able to spend 24 hours a day underwater.
