A Professor sets a new underwater world record by living for 74 days under the water at Florida Keys Lodge for scuba divers under ambient pressure.
The professor named, Dr Joseph Dituri has set a new underwater world record at the Jules’ Undersea Lodge, which is at the bottom of the 30-foot-deep lagoon in Key Largo. He went underwater on 01 March 2023 and didn’t look much different today than the day he went underwater.
Man Sets New Underwater World Record By Living 74 Days Underwater!
The professor has told through the interview that he ate a protein-heavy meal of eggs and salmon cooked in microwaves. He exercised using resistance bands, did daily pushups, and took an hour-long nap.
On his 74th day underwater, the professor took to Twitter and shared that he had broken the underwater world record of living here. His curiosity for research and discovery has led him here. The professor shared that his goal from the first day was to explore life underwater and inspire the new generation to come. Interview scientists like him about life underwater under ambient pressure and learn and study how the human body functions in these conditions.
Earlier, two tennis professors, Bruce Cantrell and Jessica Fain, made the underwater world record of staying for 73 days, two hours, and 34 minutes in the year 2014 at the exact location.
However, Professor Dituri is not underwater to break this record. He will stay underwater till 09 June 2023 to achieve his goal of 100 days living underwater and to complete his research and study in an underwater mission dubbed Project Neptune 100.
This mission is based on the ocean, medical research, and education outreach. Marine Resources Development Foundation owns the lodge and has organized this mission.
Professor Dituri, an educator at the University of South Florida, has said that this record is a small bump, but he really has more science to do.
