WATCHING THE WORLD WHEN IS A DIVER NOT A DIVER?
With David Knott from London Operators of the latest atmospheric diving system, the Newtsuit, are not called divers. They are pilots and have to be specially trained. Newtsuit looks like an astronaut's outfit. Four thrusters enable it to fly through water, controlled by the pilot's foot pads. It has 20 joints to maximize mobility, carries a 48 hr oxygen supply, and has a 1,000 ft depth limit.
