Blue Abyss is extremely pleased to release share 3D footage and images, created by Cityscape Digital, providing an internal view of the Blue Abyss pool.

At approximately 42,000m³, Blue Abyss will be the world's largest and deepest indoor pool.

The pool is aimed at assisting and connecting various specialist sectors, including Diving, Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) and Autonomous Unmanned Vehicle, (AUV), Offshore Energy, Life Science and Human Spaceflight, among others. IN addition, it will provide the UK with an innovative, aquatic-based STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) education centre.

The overall complex will house both hyper and hypo-baric chambers and a micro-gravity simulation suspension system for replicating the effects of weightlessness and low gravity in environments like those found on Moon and Mars. Housed within the 'Kuehnegger Human Performance Centre', in honour of Professor Walter Kuehnegger, the NASA Principal Investigator who pioneered the Apollo Programme human exploration of the Moon, this R&D facility will be the first in the UK to focus on human spaceflight and it's terrestrial benefits. A boutique hotel, training and class rooms and an onsite cafeteria will complete the complex.
