I want to live for two weeks underwater in NOAA's Aquarius
The 2004 Aquarius writing contest is underway.
Applicants must describe in 1000 words or less about why they want
to live underwater in the Aquarius for two weeks. Applicants

As Aquarius can be used at other sites, applicants can choose
a site of there choice to describe in the essay, however, they must
be prepared to justify the site chosen, including an understanding
of the marine biology and environmental issues that apply to the
relevant ecosystem/location, the advantages/risks of saturation
diving, and that the site chosen is conducive to deploying the Aquarius.
