In June 2014, Fabien Cousteau and his team of aquanauts embarked on Mission 31, the longest science expedition to take place at Aquarius, the world’s only underwater marine laboratory, located nine miles off the coast of the Florida Keys, and 63 feet beneath the sea. Fabien’s epic Mission 31 expedition broke new ground in ocean exploration and honored the 50th anniversary of his grandfather, Jacques-Yves Cousteau’s original 30-day underwater living experiment known as Conshelf Two, that was featured in his Academy Award winning film for Best Documentary Feature, “World Without Sun.”
Fabien’s team was able to go deeper, longer and further, with Mission 31 while broadcasting each moment live on multiple channels exposing the world to the adventure, drama and mystique of what lies beneath. For 31 straight days, Fabien and his team kept the importance of the ocean in the news, classrooms, businesses and homes worldwide. As a result of Mission 31, three years of scientific research was captured resulting in at least 12 scientific published studies; more than 70 virtual sessions were completed as a part of the mission’s STEAM-themed (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) Skype in the Classroom program reaching over 100,000 children on all six continents; and more than 30 billion media impressions were made, to date, keeping the entire world engaged on the importance of the human-ocean connection.
With the success of Mission 31, the OLC is preparing the next big mission for 2018.
