SeaOrbiter: When Global Warming Forces Us To Live At (In) Sea

Called the SeaOrbiter, the huge 51m (167ft) structure is set to be the world's first vertical ship allowing man a revolutionary view of life below the surface.

Mr Rougerie [the ship's designer] wants the ship to be a space station for the sea giving scientists an insight into the little-known world under the sea.

'SeaOrbiter will provide a permanent mobile presence with a window to what is under the surface of the sea."

'The food and medicines of the future will come from the ocean. We're now starting to realise that oceans have a major role in the fragile equilibrium of our planet.'
