Living underwater . . .

In July 2001 Roy Caldwell led an underwater “mission” in the Aquarius habitat. The Aquarius is the world’s only operational underwater habitat being used for basic research on marine systems. Because the scientists lived underwater, they were able to spend much more time collecting data, and learned a lot about the behavior of stomatopods in their natural environment.
