This is an awesome documentary featuring my good friend Dennis Chamberland - A brilliant man and visionary!!!!
Dennis Chamberland doesn't just want to live underwater: he wants anyone to join him. And he's determined to make that a reality within a decade.
Chamberland joined NASA as a bioengineer in the mid '80s, just as the manned space program was starting to thunder forward. But rather than looking up to the stars, he began looking down - deep down. As a developer of the agency's Advanced Space Life Support Systems, which monitors the safety for all off-planet habitation pursuits, Chamberland soon became a lead proponent of research on an idea being floated by NASA at the time: using the sea as a testbed for space exploration. Before long, this homegrown explorer would become one of the country's leading proponents of undersea habitation, and an advocate for what he calls the "space-ocean analog."
