This film relates in detail the main objectives of SEALAB II. It includes footage of many activities associated with the SEALAB II experiment. It asks how many men can live for how long under the sea and to what depths man can function under the ocean. It asks what the limits are to human habitation in the sea. Two teams of men work for fifteen consecutive days inside the SEALAB II structure 205 feet deep, one mile off La Jolla, California. Astronaut Scott Carpenter, SEALAB II team commander, remains under water in the habitat for the full duration of the project, 32 consecutive days. This film provides an interesting account of the SEALAB II experiment with advanced knowledge of physiological factors governing prolonged human underwater living conditions.
