Ocean Exploration Vessel Will Knock on Neptune's Door

renowned, he lists among his achievements the Sea Pavilion in Kobe, Japan; the underwater archaeological museum of Alexandria in Egypt, and the Kochi Oceanarium in India. SeaOrbiter is claimed to be a unique scientific and educative platform, complementary to existing observation and analytical tools of the oceanic world due to its main capabilities of slow motion drifting pace and great autonomy. Constantly roaming the oceans and with over half of the 190ft ship under the water's surface the SeaOrbiter  plans to offer an alternative exploration proposition to current research projects
