    The Neil Armstrong of ocean exploration: Victor Vescovo (Rebroadcast)

    The Neil Armstrong of ocean exploration: Victor Vescovo (Rebroadcast)

    While 12 people have walked on the moon only three have ever been to the bottom of the ocean. That’s the scale of the life-changing challenge that undersea explorer Victor Vescovo had taken on: Successfully diving the five deeps of the world.

    After the private equity investor and retired naval officer decided to fund this ground breaking project all by himself, Victor and his team had to overcome many technical challenges by trying to achieve something that has never been done before. The result was a brand new form of submarine that can go to the greatest depths and come back in one piece and do it all over again.

    On this episode Victor talks about the challenges that led up to his mission and the findings after being down deep like new species that has never been discovered before and new accurate maps of the ocean floors.


    Here you can find out more about Victors endeavours:
