Introducing Mission Aquarius – Dive into an Underwater Laboratory

This is an amazing view from inside and around the world’s last remaining underwater science lab, Aquarius Reef Base.

On July 16 One World One Ocean will join Dr. Sylvia Earle, National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Liquid Pictures 3D, and a team of aquanauts for a 6-day expedition to a “research only” zone in Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, home to Aquarius, the last remaining underwater lab in the world. We will bring you live interviews and in-depth coverage.

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 it is about to be closed.

IMAX, RED, GoPro and DSLR cameras were used to capture the beauty of this special place.
