Carried by the great ocean currents, SeaOrbiter will allow a crew of explorers to live 24 hours a day over long periods in the heart of the oceans, this immense territory still mostly unknown which is “the last frontier on Earth”. The international programme of this unique vessel, essentially scientific and educational, is also an amazing communication tool that will allow to share continuously the pictures and discoveries of the crew. This project, unique in the world, is led by Jacques Rougerie, a marine architect and a member of the Academy, assisted by a team of ocean and space experts and supported, among others, by Ifremer, NASA and National Geographic.
