More than 75% of Earth in covered by water, so it is not a surprise that people are curious about oceans and sea. It is not easy to explore the depths of sea, since the researchers must watch out for bad weather, air and food supply, but Jacques Rougerie has managed to solve all these problems.

The lab is powered by solar power, but there are plans to develop a new kind of bio fuel that will allow it to move during cloudy weather. SeaOrbiter costs around $52.7 million and the construction should start in less than 201 days.
