Exosuit Pushes Limits of Undersea Exploration

With jet thrusters and an aluminum alloy casing, the Exosuit is a submarine you can wear. Later this year, scientists will suit up and plunge 300 meters below the ocean surface to study bioluminescent organisms. Diving safety officer Michael Lombardi of the American Museum of Natural History explains how the Exosuit extends the time a diver can stay submerged at 30 times the surface pressure.
