BioSUB Construction Underway

Underwater Pioneer Lloyd Godson from Australia is in the construction phase of his underwater habitat. Lloyd is one of the few private individuals who has designed and built his own habitation in a remote and extreme environment. The BioSUB website is found by clicking here. It tells all about Lloyd’s venture, and it is an exciting one at that! He will put live plants together with a human (himself) in the underwater habitat and check out the capacity of a kind of bioregenrative life support system. Lloyd is making his habitat out of shipping containers, a unique idea shown in photos here. Lloyd’s project is being sponsored by the Australian Geographic Society.
