Soon, 5-person submarine to take tourists 2 miles under sea

Washington, Oct. 19 : A local submersible company Oceangate has collaborated with the University of Washington's Applied Physics Laboratory, to construct a five-person submarine that would travel almost 2 miles below the ocean's surface.


Cyclop's innovative design and carbon-fiber hull will enable passengers to reach 9,842 feet or 3,000 meters under the sea, Fox News reported.

The vehicle is in the shape of a bullet, and the carbon-fiber hull is capable of plunging down to depth in less than 1 hour.

The sub features a 5-foot-wide dome that passengers are going to sit in, which will give them a 180-degree view.

Over the past 1 and a half year, the scientists have seen more than 20 prototype designs to get to their just revealed plan.

Every carbon fiber and resin strip has been precisely placed to build a hull that has no gaps or weak points.

A lithium-polymer battery is going to be used to make it lighter.
