The concept of Pathfinder- deep submarine that drive ashore onto any port or coastline. A 73-day record breaking stretch of time living in an underwater, thousands of followers are tuning in to know about the technology remotely around marine world. To explore the deep blue sea, for any commercial application an ocean exploration should become popular for research and tourism.
There is public fascinating with the sea and life. By facing some of the challenges, environmentally and economically, we cannot leave exploration of our blue planet up to governments alone, by preserving the secrets our ocean holds; we can work upon it.
Underwater tourism acts as a catalyst for ocean conservation. One of the current XPRIZE Ocean Health is challenging teams to create pH sensor technology remotely to find out about the deep sea resting place and turn the tide on ocean. It can affordably, accurately and efficiently measure ocean chemistry.
As beginning with this scheme for commercial underwater tourism .Pauley explores the remote depths in a Pathfinder – an amphibious submarine with the ability to navigate the oceans and drive ashore. The technology behind this was more efficient as green battery-powered motors were being used to see the resting place.
Pauley loved this concept more than for commercial underwater tourism to become a reality in our lifetime, showing people the unique beauty of our space.
