The SEALAB experiments, led by captain George F. Bond, were the first time anyone was given this chance. The three SEALABS were school bus sized habitats stationed on the ocean floor that researchers could live in for months at depths of up to 300 feet. The SEALABs inspired the construction of many other submerged labs. Though, over time, many were defunded or decommissioned due to lack of interest and funding; today the only remaining undersea base is the Aquarius, located sixty feet down a few miles off the shore of Florida. Sand Dollars As enticing and as scientifically enriching as an opportunity an underwater settlement may be, prospective pioneering aquanauts must face a daunting hurdle before seriously considering anything else: financing. An ambitious project such as this will not come to fruition without the monetary backing to would pay for the materials, construction, and maintenance that would be required. Luckily, several potential options exist for funding this undertaking. One possibility consists the gaining of investments from government and public research institutions. The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the European Research Council (ERC), although different in origin, both have the same desire to promote advancement in human understanding and…

This is how it always has been.“We shouldn’t,” protested Isabelle. “The Clave has a plan.”“The Clave has the collective intelligence of a pineapple,” said Jace. This quote shows that it is not unknown that the council is stupid. The characters, at least the main ones, know that the council is wrong. In a way, just like in Anthem, people only talk to their…

    Being somewhat naïve, I anticipated an immediate response that safety changes were necessary and quick action to implement some. Instead I realized that creating change is difficult and moves very slowly; especially if costs are involved. This was a great example of the checks and balances principle of government; the majority was not completely convinced change was necessary by a single minority voice. If a grass roots movement of many people was utilized instead, I believe the need for changes…

    I traveled to the government center in toledo to attend a meeting with a small group of government students. Along the way, we got lost but eventually found the tall white building that one of our friends described to us as the government center. I found a parking spot and paid the parking meter. We walked the rest of the way in the unpredicted humid May weather. The building was refreshingly cool; the inside was presented in a sophisticated manner. I could not help but feel out of place in my…
