Imagine if your home was constructed of materials, capable of providing you and your family, with the ability to live below the surface of the Atlantic ocean, or any ocean for that matter. Now this may sound really far-fetched, but perhaps not as distant as you think. The international space station is nothing more than a hotel in outer space. Many of those same technologies that brought that project to fruition, may apply to this underwater endeavor as well. I'm an ocean lover, and have fantisized about this concept each time NASA has advances within the realm of the "space race". So this page will examine the "ways and means", that such an incredible underwater life-style may someday exist!!
Living below the surface of the sea isn’t just for fish and other water creatures. Humans residing in underwater-homes may become the norm. If fact in various locations worldwide, foundations are being created. There is a hotel in Dubai, a resort in Fiji! Israel boast a "below the surface" restaurant, and another restaurant on Rangali Island. To date, living in an underwater habitat, has only been done in rather short periods of time. One would either live on submarines, or visit the underwater hotels and restaurants. However, more permanent habitats are being planned, such as the Challenger Habitat off the Florida coast.
