Inhaltsangabe: Revealed for the first time, the final 13 desperate, chaotic hours that would result in the tragic death of aquanaut Berry Cannon. The mysterious shroud surrounding his death is finally lifted in this intimately detailed book by a man who was there at the hopeful inception of Sealab II and also at its inglorious end.
Flush with the overwhelming success of Sealab II in 205 feet of water, off the coast of San Diego, U.S. Naval decision makers in their zealous but professionally nave quest to conquer still deeper depths of "inner-space," now decide that the aquanauts would once again inhabit the sea floor. Only this time, for twelve days and at the astounding depth of 610 feet ...
In Death of an Aquanaut, the author, William (Bill) Bunton, selected as a participating civilian aquanaut for both Sealab II and III, writes a historical Sealab memoir of events that culminate in the hasty dismantling of the U.S. Navy's misguided, though valiant effort to inhabit the deep ocean depths.
