Virgin Oceanic: Going to the Ocean Depths

Friend of the site, Sir Richard Branson, has launched a new Virgin company called Virgin Oceanic.

When Sir Richard Branson Upon unveiling the Virgin Oceanic submarine, he noted that “More men have been to the moon than have been down further underwater than 20,000 feet.” To that end, he and an explorer pal will take the submarine to the deepest trenches of the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Southern, and Arctic Oceans, feeding first-of-its-kind data and video to Google, to be added to Google’s Earth and Maps databases. The deep sea is truly the final frontier on our planet, and Branson wants to make it as accessible as possible.
