Whether your 9,800 feet below the sea or 12 miles above the Earth, technology is beautiful. This week we look at amazing images from new technology being developed in the space in between.
With Elon Musk and his SpaceX team and James Cameron diving deep into the ocean, exploration seems to be going mainstream. To that end, a new submersible being developed could take a person to 9,800 feet below the sea. The Cyclops, being developed by OceanGate, Boeing Research & Technology, and the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington, will be constructed from carbon fiber and have a 7-inch-thick hull able to withstand 4,300 psi (300 bar) of water pressure. Look for it in 2016.
