Getting Deep with Sylvia Earle

sylvia earle goes deep

Driver training in a 1 person sub. My instructor was ocean scientist Dr. Sylvia Earle. I did this story several years ago but was reminded of the experience when James Cameron and National Geographic teamed up this week to dive the Mariana Trench, the deepest place on the planet. We talk about Cameron’s adventure & my own dives this week on N.G. Weekend.

Here’s the basic lesson I learned from my time in Deep Worker, there’s no room to move and no room for error.  The second part of that lesson is the most important, if you ever want to have the chance to stretch your legs again.
