Joseph Dituri is an American professor with a passion for marine life, who served in the US Navy and now teaches for the University of South Florida (USF). however, Since March he has conducted an investigation for which he intends to spend 100 days in extreme conditions living under the surface of a lake in Florida.
Last Sunday, May 14, Deturi broke the record for life under water. The people who stayed there the longest were 73 days, two hours and 34 minutes, and they were two professors from Tennessee, Bruce Cantrell and Jessica Fain. however, Joseph will spend more than 75 days 9 meters below the surface of the water,
is whining the study of how the human body responds to long-term exposure to extreme pressure, But they have announced that they want to inspire generations to study marine life.
When the professor announced he would break the world record, he said on his Twitter: “The curiosity to discover is what got me here. From day one my goal has been to inspire generations to come, Interview the scientists who study life under water and learn how the human body works in extreme environments.”
55-year-old man underwent multiple tests psychosocial, psychological and medical, including blood tests, ultrasound and electrocardiogram, stem cell tests as well, before, during and after the project, USF said in a statement.
Researcher commented To kill free time, he wakes up at 5 in the morning to exercise and eats protein-rich foods. Such as eggs and salmon, which can be heated in the microwave.
in addition to Lagoon continues to teach online biomedical engineering classes, As reported by the University of South Florida.
This man lives exactly 9.15 meters deep in a 9.3 square meter space And the capsule where it resides doesn’t use technology to adjust to the increase in underwater pressure, unlike a submarine, so researchers want to know how the human body reacts. Prolonged exposure to extreme pressure.
especially Joseph is expected to stay in the shelter at the bottom of the lagoon for about 100 days, But the teacher has said that he missed the surface. “What I miss most about being on the surface is the sun Dituri told The Associated Press Agency.
