Godson's Mission About Ready

Australian marine scientist and explorer, Lloyd Godson has completed his underwater habitat he calls Biosub and is ready to begin his expedition in just a few weeks hence. Shown here is the photo of Godson’s Biosub habitat just after painting. The mission is described in greater detail here.

The BioSUB project is the winner of the Australian Geographic “Live your dream” Wildest Adventure Competition. Marine scientist and diver, Lloyd Godson, will live his dream of surviving in the world’s first self-sustaining underwater habitat for up to two weeks. Lloyd aims to demonstrate a number of scientific principles involved in providing a self-sustained underwater habitat. It will require the same specially designed regenerative or recycling technology needed for any long term manned mission to Mars.
