Right now we've got curious curiosity up on Mars as we told -- but how about a new way to explore some of the unseen parts of our own planet.
A submersible vehicle that moves under water kind of like an airplane.
If all goes well makers of the deep -- super -- hope to conduct an underwater.
It's designed by the same team that built a deep water submarine for billionaire Richard Branson.
Graham fox is the ended engineer and inventor designer of the deep flight super falcon.
So this thing is is far from the old -- the -- the old globe is that they used to drop down to explore.
The deeper portions of the ocean -- Yeah about as far as you can get.
Date yet you put some wings -- -- you've got to propulsion system and what does that allow you to do.
What is literally underwater flight I mean there.
Yeah -- Sanyo -- this is an underwater craft is nothing like this submersible.
Yes -- and as a pilot I've done loop the loops before.
That has never been done in a submersible vehicle.
-- No more than you could do that blues so that this is that cherry on the top we just showing how.
Beautifully maneuverable this thing is you and you are hoping to be able to prove that -- you're going to be able to demonstrate that in the days ahead.
-- we're trying to find that through kicks out of with people we've already thrown it on his back so we know it's safe but -- not been done yet.
All right how how deep can this particular submersible ago.
Well this particular one is just to fly -- the animals so it's just -- for a thousand feet.
That's pretty deep doubts might be -- it gets dark about 500 feet doesn't -- daylight doesn't penetrate.
That's -- -- -- -- so this is really intended to move would -- gambles in the Twilight Zone.
Down to about 500 feet you don't drive at -- and what is ultimately the goal for this particular craft I mean is it.
Do you do you hope to bring that the costs down enough that people would be able to use them at resorts for instance diving and that kind of thing.
Yes yeah that this particular machine in his mind and I.
You know -- there in that loop is a blast then sold for this machine is going to be moving and filming big animals.
But we have to bring this of the public and you're gonna be trying the loop in Lake Tahoe gonna have that right.
Yeah we set up to ten estranged the weather and everything -- I do.
Well we'll look forward to updating our viewers when you get the thing tried out there Lake Tahoe -- beautiful I was just there -- -- thank you.
