The Eye of SeaOrbiter

Help us build SeaOrbiter. Together let's open a new era of Ocean exploration.

 

At the dawn of the 21st century, a new generation of exploration vessels is about to become real with SeaOrbiter. 

 

2012_-_panoramique_-_web

 

Drifting with the main oceanic currents, SeaOrbiter will allow a crew of explorers to live 24 hours a day over a long period of time in the heart of the ocean, this vast territory still widely unknown being the last frontier on the planet. 

 

With scientific and educational purposes, the international program of this unique vessel is also a powerful communication platform that will allow continuous sharing of pictures, videos and scientific discoveries.

 

This unique project is led by the sea architect and Academician, Jacques Rougerie, surrounded by the world's leading ocean and space experts and supported by, among others, Ifremer, NASA and National Geographic. 

 

For more than 10 years, an international team has been working on the conception of SeaOrbiter and the gathering of necessary funds for construction and its missions. This KissKissBankBank campaign is the opportunity to start concretely the construction of SeaOrbiter by bringing together the community of all exploration, scientific and marine knowledge fans.

 

Since SeaOrbiter is an exploratory, scientific and technological adventure crucial to mankind, we invite you to be part of it. We have allocated part of the funding of the vessel to crowdfunding.

Therefore, your precious support will allow us to build the Eye of SeaOrbiter.

 

What is the Eye of SeaOrbiter ?

 

Out of the total vessel heigt of 58 meters, the 18m of the Eye of SeaOrbiter hosts the lookout post and all the communication systems. One of the specificity of the vessel SeaOrbiter is to allow the public to follow "live" the great adventure, the crew daily life, their exploration, their discoveries and share the scientific results.

 

This centerpiece will mark the beginning of the construction of SeaOrbiter in France in Spring 2014.

 

Here are a few pictures of the Eye of SeaOrbiter :

In order to undertake these missions, we have imagined a multilevel vessel, able to explore simultaneously oceans’ surface and great depths.

By participating to this campaign, you will get involved in the construction of the upper part of the vessel, the most visible one, located 18 meters above the ocean…

Understanding the vision behind the program SeaOrbiter

 

SeaOrbiter continues the legacy of Jules Verne, Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Jacques Piccard.

 

To each era its visionary, to each visionary his vessel, to each vessel its adventure, to each adventure its media.

 

Jules Verne shed a new light on the underwater world with his novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”. Jacques-Yves Cousteau introduced us to the Silent World through the prism of television. 

After Jules Verne and Jacques-Yves Cousteau, SeaOrbiter opens a new era of communication about the ocean using all the possibilities offered either by digital technologies and modern communication tools (internet, social media, satelite live links...)

Jacques Rougerie tells the origin of his project :

 

SeaOrbiter is the culmination of over 30 years of innovative research and creations in marine and subsea architecture. 

 

This futuristic vessel is nourrished by my desire to inhabit the sea and to push the boundaries of the knowledge of the marine world. SeaOrbiter will enable men to live under the sea for long period of times.

 

To carry out the project SeaOrbiter, for 10 years, I gathered around myself an international experienced team, composed of the world's leading ocean and space specialists. Each one in his field gives the best of himself in order to bring my vision to life through an international program and a unique vessel."

Why is SeaOrbiter crucial for mankind ?

 

The ocean is at the heart of the planetary system, being together the engine and the lung of the planet. It must therefore be placed at the center of our daily considerations. We must build a new social-economical model for the world, integrating in a responsible and sustainable way the ocean as a main source for innovations and solutions for the planet and therefore as a value of progress.

A flagship for this Blue Society, SeaOrbiter also embodies the needs to explore those new resources to benefit humanity and respond to the main challenges of tomorrow.

Allocation of funds

 

SeaOrbiter is an extraordinary human adventure, a great source of discovery and a humanist program where the notion of sharing is fundamental. Your support will illustrate this approach and make a definite contribution to the financing of the upper part of the vessel.

 

The construction of the Eye of SeaOrbiter requires 325.000 euros. The construction will begin in spring 2014 in France.

 

 

 

Budget

 

To build SeaOrbiter, a consortium of industrial, technical and technological partners is formed and ready to start the construction.

 

We gathered about 70% of 35 million euros required for the construction.

The Eye of SeaOrbiter represents 1% of the total budget, but the symbolism associated with the construction of the Eye will hopefully allow the remaining 30% to be funded.

 

Moreover the SeaOrbiter  program is supported by an international scientific, educational and institutional network that gives expertise and ensures credibility.

 

The adventure will be relayed throughout the world by media international partners.

 

More information about the partners

 

Thanks to your support, SeaOrbiter will become real and we will be able to get into shipyard the sooner. 

 

Whatever your contribution, your donation will allow you to become a member of the great SeaOrbiter crew and allow you to board this great planetary adventure crucial to mankind. 

 

Be an actor for a preserved ocean and for a better Planet.
