How to Get to the Sea Floor While Still Breathing

By Oobject on at

Before we had ALVIN—or proper submarines for that matter—the best way to get to the seafloor was by using a diving bell. Originally made from recycled church bells, these diving apparatuses protected their passengers from the murky depths in a bubble of air. Our friends at Oobject have assembled nine of the best.
When you're done diving into these, check out a few decommissioned subs, their claustrophobic torpedo rooms, and these nine bathing machines.
