How deep did you go in real life? I´m only allowed to go 40 meters down :)

I´m an IT Manager, Programmer, Diver, Magician, Chef looking forward to write my first book, would love to become a Private Pilot, learning to flight in simulators. Living life at beautiful Barcelona 100 meters from the sea. Keep in touch and Rock On!

How does this work? You live in a pressure chamber for 26days. Is this chamber is submercible?
What are you doing down there? Welding Pipelines and oil rigs?

Ok :)
This has to be like an astronaut.
There's a pretty good wikipedia entry about saturation diving:

And here's a nice documentary:

My deepest dives are very shallow compared to you :)

Scuba diving in Dahab Egypt I went down to 25m.
And Apnoe freediving 17m.

My longest distance in freediving was 130m at 2m depth in a 50m swimming pool.

No dident see it, they asked if we wanted to go and see it, but all of us wher old navy/rescue divers so we dident feel the need to go and see a dead guy. but i dont under stand wy they dont do body recovery isent ther any good rescue divers in Egypt? isent to hard to go down to 130m and du some work with the right gear.

What is left is a wet suit with bones and a tank. They even could just bring down a rope with a hook on the tank:(
Recovery seems to be expensive and nobody knows this diver. Pretty sad.
The Israeli military once or twice recovered soliders divers with a mini submarine years ago.
