  • Inside the world’s only undersea lab

    The Takeaway - 07/07/2014

    Ocean explorer Fabien Cousteau recently wrapped up his record-breaking underwater expedition, Mission 31. Cousteau lived and worked for 31 days aboard the world’s only undersea laboratory: the Aquarius Reef Base, more than sixty feet underwater, in the Florida Keys. Cousteau’s mission honored the pioneering work of his famous grandfather, Jacques Cousteau, who led a similar undersea expedition 50 years ago aboard another underwater habitat called Conshelf II, in the Red Sea.

    WGBH’s Science Editor, Heather Goldstone, visited Aquarius when she joined researchers from Boston’s Northeastern University who participated in Cousteau’s undersea expedition.
