    I was just about to post this. Should make an interesting show. Did any of you read the book Sealab that was published a few years back?

    They did a nice job. could have done without Sylvia Earle's commentary, but she seems to be the go to person for these types of productions

    I was nice to see a few old shipmates. I was assigned to the Mark II Deep Dive System in 1971 but some of the Sealab'ers were still onboard. It is interesting that all the early experiments used habitats instead of the much more practical ship-based sat complex.
