Of all those 1970s projects involving humans living underwater? The Navy ones in particular.

Did it really just stop, or continue in secret?

I have read exhaustively about this. There were 70 of these stations active worldwide at their peak. That we know of. The Soviets had their own, most of which we'll never know anything about.

To the best of my knowledge only the US still openl y operates one for scientific purposes.

The Soviet habitats like Chernomor involved "psychoisolation" experiments. The popular belief at the time was that humans are psychically connected all the time and there are so many voices it's like a static we subconsciously tune out. When there were far fewer humans on Earth this sixth sense worked properly but rapid population growth made it maladaptive, so we evolved a mute buttom to avoid going insane.

The experiments were intended to immerse human subjects deep underwater as it's a near perfect radiation shield and have them attempt telepathic communication with each other. Nothing came of it because our brains do not actually work that way.

Okay so you know how you cup your hands and put it in water and a bubble forms? Same thing.
The air only can go upward but since there's the metal above it, it stays where it is and pushes the water out.
>>
>>14962591
As long as air isn't entering or leaving in excess amounts, no. As I said:

>Same concept when you hold a cup upside down and put it underwater, and it holds a pocket of air.

Also, air is lighter then water, so as long as you have a way to hold the air in place like in that setup the water wont enter. Put a hole some where in the rig near the top and air will begin escaping and the water will move into the rig to fill the space being left by the air. It's simple fluid dynamics.

>>14962583
>the nation that has to hire other nations spacecraft for lack of their own.
At least that's changing finally(hopefully). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Launch_System
>>
>>14962643
Ok, I get that. But presumably the air is cycled to keep it fresh and breathable. So where does the new air come from? I may be wrong, but I figure that the air that was originally there when it was made doesn't stay forever.
>>
>>14962651
It was mentioned back up there. There is a unit on the surface that cycles out the air and keeps up the pressure.

>>14953933
>Nothing came of it because our brains do not actually work that way.

>>
>>14962651
>but I figure that the air that was originally there when it was made doesn't stay forever.

How would it even leave? If you're talking about actually breathing it, all you're doing is exchanging the Oxygen for Carbon Dioxide. The volume of air present in the rig doesn't change. This is in a closed system obviously.

In one where you're getting fresh air from the surface, a simple compressor on the surface maintains pressure while supplying air to the rig.
>>
>jew and commie discussions on /x/

please don't do this guys, this was my safe haven. I get enough of this on /pol/, I just want to read about spoopy skellingtons and underwater bases here
>>
>>14962696
I guess I meant it would leave from the system, since the now carbon dioxide rich air would need to be removed. It makes sense though when you say that some sort of pump or air pressure system is used, because it's slowly removing bad air and replacing it with oxygen rich air. I say further up in the thread here >>14954407
something about a BioCoil thing which seems to perform that function. What I'm interested in is where it's getting the oxygen from. I know that it's absorbing the carbon dioxide, but I don't understand how it's producing new, good air. Does it draw it through the water by some method, like that breather device they had in The Phantom Menace?
>>
>>14962724
When you breath Oxygen, it's converted to Carbon Dioxide. When the Algae in the coil breaths Carbon Dioxide, it's converted to Oxygen. There is no change in the volume of air in the rig. No air is entering or leaving the system in this process.

>>14962744
