Exploring and exploiting the waterways and oceans of our planet has been an integral part of mankind's heritage for tens of thousands of years. As we forge forward into the Twenty-First Century and beyond, the oceans promise to hold their central role in the history of our species. Mankind is forever finding new ways to use these watery environments, from food to travel to energy production and living space.
The oceans represent an enormous volume, much larger than that currently inhabited by man on the continents. Under the oceans, many resources and scientific wonders await, and submersible technology will be how we will explore and exploit them.
