Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review


THE League of New Worlds (LNW) announced that on 01 August 2010 - all conditions permitting - three aquanauts: Dennis Chamberland, Claudia Chamberland and Terrence Tysall will commence the longest durational undersea habitat mission ever attempted called ATLANTICA I. The crew prepares to live and work in the aquatic environment for a period of 80 continuous days from a custom-built facility called the Leviathan Habitat, in the waters of Florida. The LNW have engaged an international crew of 24 record-holding aquanauts, astronauts, scientists, and exceptional achievers in various relevant fields who will rotate in five-day visits to service the wider objectives of the project. The mission foci are: Expedition Science, Expedition Research and Environmental Stewardship. The Atlantica Expedition champions clean, autonomous life support, responsible collaboration, systems development, infrastructures, education, inclusion, access and outreach. The unique mission requirements provide an opportunity for testing innovative technologies, methodologies, philosophies, architectural and communications platforms and strategies for conceptualizing, communicating and disseminating the human experience, whilst serving to further knowledge of/in/for permanent colonization - ATLANTICA II. This presentation posits these Atlantica Expeditions as an innovative platform for investigating and developing new space-related art as a critical technology, performance matrix and requirement for long duration extreme environment living.
