At the crux of all life that we know lies water, the one substance that makes this planet special. Yet, it is largely unexplored and little understood. We are beholden to it for everything but we don't know much about how it dictates our economy, weather, health or even our very own future. At the helm of a unique project called Mission 31, Fabien Cousteau will lead a team of modern day aquanauts. Based in the only undersea marine habitat, they will live underwater and explore the surrounding undersea world for an epic 31 days. During this underwater adventure, Fabien and his team will not only be conducting cutting edge science experiments around climate change, and human physiology as well as documentary filming but will also connecting to millions around the world in real time via the web thru platforms like Skype In The Classroom, Twitter, Facebook, and more from the depths below. All this in the name of the human-ocean connection.
