How to breathe under water

Old shipwrecks, Nazi gold and the treasures of the sea – all are waiting

for you right outside your door and beneath the ocean surface. But to

get to it you have to dive deep down into the sea and return safely to

the surface.

But due to the large pressure of the sea and your body's fragile

physiology, this is not as easy as it seems – it requires careful

consideration about which gases to breathe, the quantities of gas to be

carried with you and how to handle returning to the surface after a

given time on the bottom. We will look into these questions and more,

so that YOU can have a share in the riches of the sea!
