Godson's Underwater Mission Begins!

Lloyd Godson’s underwater mission began yesterday in Australia with the submergence of his habitat. He is now in the shakedown and system's testing phase before his actual public mission starts in a week or so. Shown above is there photo of the habitat being lowered into the water with a crane.

Here is an email I received from him this morning:

G'day Dennis,

I am one big step closer! The habitat is underwater and awaiting its occupant! The sinking was very successful, no leaks thus far and the only thing we need to correct is the slope from one side to the other. We will do that next week early. I sat inside and had a chat to myself and it felt VERY good!!! Thanks for all of your help up until now and I will keep you posted on how it progresses.

Cheers Dennis,
