Is there something that allows people to live underwater in a work
When people live underwater in a workstation, where do they put
their food and what do they eat?
From, Signe O’neale
We are now doing science using remote vehicles, the Argo II and
DSL-120 mapping systems. The DSL-120 sonar makes acoustic images
of the seafloor and Argo II takes pictures of the ocean bottom.
Right now, people don’t live underwater, although some research
has been done on people living and working in quite shallow water,
just a few hundred feet or so. My research has not involved that
type of science, but if you are interested in that subject you
might try looking at the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration) website to see if they have information on their
undersea habitat program. My guess is that they have to be quite
careful about how they keep and prepare their food, and someone
needs to bring them supplies every few days.
I hope this helps answer your question.
Thanks for your question and keep Diving and Discovering with us.
