Sea Orbiter

Whille the oceans cover over two-thirds of the Earth’s surface, they contain 99 percent of the living space on the planet and are home to almost 80 percent of all life on Earth. Remarkably, we have only explored 10 percent of that space, however French architect Jacques Rougerie is hoping to change that with his futuristic oceanographic station – The SeaOrbiter.

Not just a scientific laboratory, The SeaOrbiter is also the world’s first vertical ship, standing 170 feet (51m) tall, allowing explorers an unique view of life below the waves. What is also unique about the vessel, is that two-thirds of its structure remain underwater, giving the craft buoyancy as well a “fish-collection system for studies of the pelagic ecosystem, plankton biodiversity, and fish stocks.”.
