From the 20,000 Leagues Beneath Sea to the Abyss, from Seaquest DSV and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea to the recent movie Underwater, the underwater environment has been a been a staple for science fiction. Even Star Wars has got in on the act with the underwater cities of Naboo in The Phantom Menace. In this panel we talk with a panel of ocean scientists about some of the most famous underwater science fiction epics – from the good to the bad, and even the ugly – and what it’s actually like to work and even live, underwater.
