What’s easier to explore: outer space or the ocean? Laci’s got the surprising answer — and more — right here!

DNews is a show about the science of everyday life. We post two new videos every day of the week.

“Dubai’s Underwater Hotel Promises Submersible Luxury”

“Dubai’s fascination with overblown architecture has moved below sea level thanks to the announcement of The Water Discus — billed as the world’s largest underwater hotel. With an aesthetic not too many light years removed from the Starship Enterprise and an evacuation mechanism not dissimilar to that of a cafetiere plunger in reverse, the design by Polish firm Deep Ocean Technology reveals a hotel split into two parts — one permanently above the water and the other capable of submerging to a depth of 33 feet.”

“Underwater habitat”

“Underwater habitats are underwater structures in which people can live for extended periods and carry out most of the basic human functions of a 24-hour day, such as working, resting, eating, attending to personal hygiene, and sleeping. In this context ‘habitat’ is generally used in a narrow sense to mean the interior and immediate exterior of the structure and its fixtures, but not its surrounding marine environment. Most early underwater habitats lacked regenerative systems for air, water, food, electricity, and other resources.”

We're already trashing the land so we shouldn't build cities underwater or Mother Nature will smite humanity down.

IDKKID May 25, 2018 - 7:47 PM

All we need is to stable the under water pressure an a constant flow off oxygen

IDKKID May 25, 2018 - 7:49 PM

Make an under water tube like road with the glass being roughly 10 feet thick

Deepak Joshi October 29, 2018 - 9:43 PM

U look like railey raid

Muont kea Is 10km long..
But 50km (500m) of it are below the water..otherwise mout kilimandjaro wouldn't Be the highest from its base and Everest the highest from sealevel..
But kea is truly the highest ?
Could a closed hawaian ski-resort like in Dubai go from its peak to its underwater ending ?
If there would Be a similar situation near the mariana trench, at whose bottom an already created undewatercolony would Be existing……
[ (many tipes like you Can see in projects created(at the bottom, floating,and the ring going up and down on a Stick until an Ocean floor (colonization of more stratuses and depths of the mariana trench Ocean)]
……could a transparent glass tunnel from mountain like kea at some point stop ti descend a Mountain and be reoriented with a less steep but longer tunnel to end up in the extreme depths of the underwater colony on the bottom of the mariana trench ? You would start on the peak of a Mountan like kea and at some point continue on an external ski-slope if the earea Is could enough, or stay inside or on a parallel sand-ski slope, to end up in Waters, and then attach to boats or not in case of kite skiing(that would be adapted to continue as kite-surfing on Waters(if that must Be possibile even in the insight of the internal slope then the glass tunnels would need to be very tall..) or alternatively by choosing to enter another continuation one would continue skiing down either in the internal glass-ski-slope-tunnel underwatercontinuation, with no sight downwards for the snow covering the glass… or another exit would be similar but instead of snow there would be rapids-water flowing down that tunnel(water-ski,(snowboard)board-ski(kitesurfwithout surf)
Many land-/*fly-/wheel-/wind-/water-/sand-and space sports could be combined in such a world…if small rockets taking you on the First space vacations, or on great parachutings from High altitudes would start from such places ( with mountain/vulcanoes on Islands or not but possibly with as many Natural climates mixed together as possible and big depths and colonies)… many things could be done…and if vulcanoes and mountains more distant but not soo far from Sea like vesuv/Etna/appennines/few dots of alps/caucasus/Teide.. would be continuing underwater trough the bridged-tunnel(like a bridge) with Little downwars declination going from a certain spot of the lower part of the (closed) mountain-Winter resort (often with an external parallel slope for good Natural Winter season on its sides outside the glass tube-structure) trough this Little declinated bridge carrying the continuation of the closed resort, into the water for underwater continuation of the ski resort where depending on the point of immersion of the resort, and the depth of its water and its distance from the beach..
-> ..A small Sand-Island-Mountain for sand-skiing/kiting/ecc..could be added……….
[(in addition the possibility of furnishing this snow-alternative(Sand) also on the Mountain part of the resort as well as on the bridge part(same goes for the rapids/water (closed-)descent(that by the way on the mountain part can be furnished externally(parallel external slope(as goes for sand and snow*(*depending on the climate)))]
……for descending It a bit or(/and) for then continuing on water by attaching on boat or opening a kite(/and even a direct tunnel-surfacewater connection trough a small alternative tunnel at the point of direction entrace of water would be cool)….
Furthermore.., from any external point on Mountain/roof-or-upwards-opened-side-alternative of the bridge mountain-slope connection(Mountain to water)/small Sand-Island-Mountain at the Sea entrace area of the resort(point in which declinated bridge enters the water..)….from any of these external opened ski-possibilties….the opening of a kite-/parachute/flying-like-invention(e.g.Wingsuit/deltaplano(Ita)) would Always be possibile to then fly on some other parte of the bridge reentering it, or at its end, or onto the Sand-deviation near its immerison point(Sand-Island-mountain) or onto the water/into to then dove and enter the tunnel trough an entrance tube underwater after diving/entering a colony with High altitude of its environment directly insted of using the tube directed to the colony, After a dive to It, and parachuting from its glass-roof trough an apposite entrance thingy, and then parachuting into High air-altitudes of a very High/tall anderwater environment…how many things could be done….how many sports mixed up together…(would be cool to see the Deep Sea creatures on one of the sides of the glass-of the non-deep,Mountain/bridge/low-water-parts of the immersed slope of the closed version of the glass Ski/waterpark/a lot more -resort….while a transparent pressurized acquariumm….
Jesuuuss…Allah…budda…and juda….. This would be Just something fucking immesly Galactic…..

Well, can We Build Cities Under Water?
You just talked about the bends and showed an underwater lab.
Not enough info.

Cool. I think I won't have peace of mind living underwater:-) even if the structure is the most advanced.
