Saturation diving technology enables human beings to withstand high water pressure by saturating human tissue with inert gas, which will allow divers to stay under water for a longer time and at a deeper sea level than with conventional techniques.
It is commonly used in deep sea exploration, in rescue operations at sea and in engineering construction at the bottom of the sea. China had previously only conducted such experiments in laboratories.
