Founded in 2021, UK based ocean technology and exploration company DEEP Research Labs Limited has announced its ambition to have humans live underwater permanently from 2027.
This would be achieved by installing subsea stations that enable researchers to operate continuously down to 200 metres on the ocean floor.
According to Steve Etherton, president and EMEA of DEEP Research Labs Limited, “we need to preserve the oceans. To do that we need to understand them.”
He continued: “The oceans sit at the centre of many of the generational challenges the world is facing, and they also offer opportunities we have not even begun to comprehend. They are the source of at least every other breath we take.
They influence the weather.
They influence the climate.
They influence us.
Yet, this life-sustaining ecosystem remains surprisingly unknown.”
