Florida professor lives underwater for 100 days to see what it does to his body


Still Waters

Recommended Posts

One man has taken it upon himself to live underwater for over three months to see what kind of affect it will have on his body.

The University of South Florida professor began his bizarre experiment earlier this month (1 March) as he straps himself in for 100 days underwater for this first-of-its-kind biology study.

Joe Dituri, also known by his handle as Dr Deep Sea, has made it his mission to make the sea his 'habitat' all the way through to summer.

The professor is set to live in 'isolation' for the entire duration of the mission which has since been titled 'Neptune 100'.

Hope he has enough supplies. I mean how is going to eat or use the restroom?

But where is the hard evidence? All I am seeing is grainy footage of a guy who could, literally, be anywhere.

US professor breaks record for longest time living underwater

A university professor broke a record for the longest time living underwater without depressurization this weekend at a Florida Keys lodge for scuba divers.

Joseph Dituri’s 74th day residing in Jules’ Undersea Lodge, situated at the bottom of a 30ft-deep lagoon in Key Largo, wasn’t much different than his previous days there since he submerged on 1 March.

Dituri – who also goes by the moniker “Dr Deep Sea” – ate a protein-heavy meal of eggs and salmon prepared using a microwave, exercised with resistance bands, did his daily pushups and took an hour-long nap. Unlike a submarine, the lodge does not use technology to adjust for the increased underwater pressure.

But Dituri isn’t just settling for the record and resurfacing: he plans to stay at the lodge until 9 June, when he reaches 100 days and completes an underwater mission dubbed Project Neptune 100.

Meet 'Dr. Deep Sea,' the scientist who broke the record for the longest time living underwater

A scientist who spent a record-breaking 100 consecutive days living in a seafloor habitat has just resurfaced. Last month, while he was still underwater, Live Science got the chance to chat with him about this unique experience and the initial scientific findings of his mission.

Joseph Dituri, a 55-year-old biomedical engineer with the International Board of Undersea Medicine and a former U.S. Navy saturation diver, lived inside the Jules' Undersea Lodge off the coast of Florida for 100 days between March 1 and June 9. The mission, known as Project Neptune, was a scientific endeavor to study the effects of living in a high-pressure environment for a sustained period.

Glad to see he had no ill effects from the experiment and it actually helped him.
