4y ago


One World One Ocean presents, in association with Liquid Pictures 3D -- Mission Aquarius -- a project of Aquarius Reef Base. Join the expedition at -- As part of an intensive safety and training program, aquanauts preparing for a mission to the Aquarius Reef Base perform a number of technical dive skills tests. The dive helmet flooding drill in this video prepares them to stay alive and self-rescue if their helmet becomes flooded with water. And it shows why not just anyone can be an aquanaut. Don't try this next time you're 60 feet underwater. Since 1993, America's "inner space station" has helped us understand the disappearance of coral reefs, train NASA astronauts for space and research sea sponges, the source of two cancer drugs. The discoveries made at Aquarius have opened our eyes to how little we really know about the vast complexity of the ocean. It is one of the planet's most important brain trusts, and this is part of its last scheduled mission. Special thanks to: Aquarius Reef Base - DJ Roller and Liquid Pictures 3D -
