One World One Ocean presents, in association with Liquid Pictures 3D -- Mission Aquarius -- a project of Aquarius Reef Base. Join the expedition at oneworldoneocean.org/aquarius --

Behind every aquanaut is a team of highly skilled, dedicated support technicians that manage the complex life support, communication and research systems that make each mission possible. The watch desk serves as the central nervous system of Aquarius Reef Base, which has become part of the reef and has been described as a living organism. While the aquanauts are pushing the edge 60 feet down, the watch desk team makes sure they have everything they need to do their job and come home safe each day.

Since 1993, America's "inner space station" has helped us understand the disappearance of coral reefs, train NASA astronauts for space and research sea sponges, the source of two cancer drugs. The discoveries made at Aquarius have opened our eyes to how little we really know about the vast complexity of the ocean. It is one of the planet's most important brain trusts, and this is part of its last scheduled mission.
