For Fabien Cousteau, grandson of famed explorer Jacques Cousteau, under the sea is a pretty comfortable place to be.

No, not like this. Not this, either. 

Marking the 50th Anniversary of his grandfather’s 30 day underwater stay at Continental Shelf Station Two, aka Conshelf Two, Cousteau plans to spend 31 days in the Aquarius lab, “the only underwater marine habitat and lab in the world.” Called “Mission 31,” Cousteau and a team of scientists will explore the effects of climate change, pollution, and the consumption of natural resources.

Also unique to the venture: the team is broadcasting the entire event live. Check out the livestream of Mission 31 below:
