A French architect named Jacques Rougerie has been working on a concept called the SeaOrbiter for 12 years. Recently he was able to complete the industrial design phase of the project and the ship is finally ready to start production in October of this year. The ship is estimated to cost $43 million to build and has backing from many industrial and scientific organizations. The ship will stand 58 m tall and 50% of it will be below the waterline allowing researchers to constantly study undersea surroundings. The ship will be green and use power generated by the sun, wind, and ocean waves as well as biofuel. The ship's main propulsion method will be to simply drift along with ocean currents.
