In 1969, four U.S. Scientists plunged into the ocean to live 58 days in an undersea habitat called Tektite, conducting months of research and setting a world record for saturated diving. Forty-five years later, a new team of aquanauts spent 31 days living at the Aquarius Habitat to educate the world about the plight to our ocean.
On Tuesday, March 28th, from 7-8:30 P.M., hear how two men became aquanauts, and find out what it's like to live under the sea. Aquanauts Ed Clifton and Kip Evans will discuss the challenges, biomedical and marine life studies, dangers, and funny moments from undersea life, as well as differences and similarities between the two aquanaut excursions.
Admission for this lecture is $5 and free for Museum members.
