Saturation divers

Saturation divers

When saturation divers are not diving to extreme depths, they can spend up to two months at a time living inside a tiny pressurized tank onboard a ship. Inside they can only breathe a mixture of helium and oxygen as normal air will kill them. They do this to stay acclimated to the intense pressures they work in.
