NOAA’s AQUARIUS: I found this via this Boing Boing article about a surgery experiment they’re trying tomorrow.

Aquarius is an underwater ocean laboratory located in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The laboratory is deployed three and half miles offshore, at a depth of 60 feet, next to spectacular coral reefs. Scientists live in Aquarius during ten-day missions

How cool is that? Totally speaks to the 12-year-old in me. I always wanted to live underwater. I spent my honeymoon at Atlantis in the Bahamas, and they had a mock-up of the ruins of an underwater city. I loved it.
