Here is a futuristic oceanographic marine vessel that would be built with the only aim of exploring the world’s oceans. It is named as “The SeaOrbiter” it would work as a scientific laboratory as scientists explore the places that cover two-thirds of our planet and contain 80% of all life on Earth, the oceans. The brainchild of French architect Jacques Rougerie. The SeaOrbiter will be 170 feet (51m) tall. This structure would also be the world’s first vertical ship.

In order to make the vessel as stable as possible, two-thirds of its structure would remain underwater, giving the craft buoyancy, as well as “fish-collection system for studies of the pelagic ecosystem, plankton biodiversity, and fish stocks.” The SeaOrbiter concept is the $52.7 million project. it has been planned for over 12 years and as being dismissed on countless occasions as a pipe dream, but it seems like the project has gained grip and construction is rumored to start in October with the vessel launching next year. Have a look at it!
