Description
SeaLab III was a 1968 Navy experiment in which five diving teams of eight aquanauts lived for a 12-day period in a sea-floor habitat placed at a depth of 620 feet off San Clemente Island, California. This experiment was also called the Deep Submergence Systems Project. This film describes the SeaLab III project. It includes footage of the SeaLab habitat being lifted from the deck of a ship and deployed at sea. It shows divers working underwater during the deployment of the habitat. It includes footage of SeaLab III aquanauts working with navy-trained porpoises. The film ends with a statement by Captain William Nicholson, Project Manager of the Deep Submergence Systems Project.
