  • Yeah, an underwater research station today on CNN 10.

  • We're going to explore that in depth to get it off.

  • Carlos, use that story is just a few minutes away.

  • First, though, the U.

  • S government is suing the Google Technology Company and 11 states have joined the lawsuit.

  • Here's what this is about.

  • The United States has antitrust laws designed to keep American businesses from having too much power.

  • The U.

  • S Justice Department says Google has broken those laws, in part by keeping competitors from getting a foothold in the online search business.

  • This could prevent Americans from ever getting to see the next Google, the next major search company, according to the Justice Department.

  • But Google believes the lawsuit is deeply flawed.

  • It says people use its search engine because they choose to not because they're forced to or because they can't find alternatives.

  • Those alternatives include Bing and Yahoo and Duck Duck Go.

  • But 90% of all Internet searches are made on Google.

  • European officials have also find Google billions of dollars for allegedly preventing competition.

  • The company has appealed those fines and says it's made changes to address concerns in Europe.

  • But Google isn't alone in these investigations.

  • A recent US congressional report says several major tech companies have too much power.

  • It accuses Amazon of mistreating third party sellers Apple of preventing competition in its APP store Facebook of buying popular APS like Instagram and WhatsApp to prevent these companies from eventually competing with Facebook.

  • All of these businesses have denied doing anything illegal.

  • They've said they're successful because of their usefulness and popularity, not because they're trying to monopolize their industry.

  • The suit involving Google is the largest antitrust case against a tech company in more than two decades, and it could be years before it's decided in 1998.

  • Lawsuit between the U.

  • S government and Microsoft eventually led Toa Limits on Microsoft software business.

  • 12th Trivia.

  • Which of these literary characters was the first to appear in print?

  • Captain Nemo, Robinson Crusoe, Horatio Hornblower or Captain Ahab?

  • Castaway Robinson Crusoe first appeared in Daniel Defoe's novel in 17 19.

  • NASA currently has five active missions to Mars.

  • There's the sixth one in partnership with the European Space Agency.

  • We told you yesterday how there are plans to put four G wireless technology on the moon, assuming a base gets built there.

  • But experts estimate that more than 80% of the Earth's oceans have never been explored.

  • Why are there so many efforts to map out other planets like Mars and Venus when we haven't fully mapped out our own?

  • One reason, critics say, is because it's expensive.

  • We don't have the technology to build a research station that can withstand deep ocean pressures.

  • And even if we did, it would reportedly cost more to do that than to put one on the moon.

  • Another reason is that some parts of the remote ocean floor that people have observed don't have a lot of features.

  • It's like a desert, except for the strange creatures that sometimes float by.

  • But supporters of ocean research are developing new keys to unlock the secrets of the sea.

  • For me, the ocean is home.

  • It's always been a source of curiosity.

  • I feel more at home in the ocean than I do on land, for many reasons, simply for the beauty of it, for the wow factor of an alien world, for the pragmatic reason to be able to answer questions that we simply don't have answers to.

  • In 2014 Fabien Cousteau and his crew spent 31 days living under the ocean on an expedition called Mission 31 on.

  • He did so on this on underwater habitat known as Aquarius.

  • From a very young age, I was exposed to the underwater world.

  • I've been scuba diving since my fourth birthday, been on expeditions with my family since I was seven.

  • Fabian comes from a family of out of the box thinkers.

  • You may be familiar with his grandfather, Jacque Cousteau, the late explorer, an innovator who pioneered underwater exploration technology.

  • His most popular invention was a regulator valve for diving.

  • It allowed humans to breathe underwater using an air tank.

  • He called it the aqualung, but we simply refer to it a scuba.

  • But even for Jack, the ultimate dream was life aquatic.

  • So in Came Con Shelf won the first ever underwater station that allowed him to live underwater for several days.

  • It laid the framework for subsequent ocean habitats.

  • One of the really neat points of Mission 31 based out of Aquarius, is that for the first time on a Cousteau expedition, we had WiFi at the bottom of the sea.

  • It was arguably better than my apartment in New York City s so we were able to reach over 100,000 students live through Skype in the classroom sessions and other platforms to really be able to show them both inside the habitat, which is pretty cool.

  • It's like the international space station and outside the habitat, all the critters and all the sea life, that fireworks display of activity that we're studying.

  • I'm a firm believer that humans and technology must work together on one of the things that we're missing is a modern undersea laboratory.

  • Modern undersea habitat on DSO a bigger, better, more advanced underwater habitat is already in the works on its name is Project Proteus.

  • We're planning on building something that is seven times or more the size of any other previous habitat in history that allows for us for much longer deployments, larger teams.

  • To be able to bring that to the bottom of the sea is absolutely paramount.

  • Cousteau is just one of many modern thinkers building up on imagining the future of ocean technology architect's air, reshaping the way we interact with the great blue, too.

  • The famous Jacques Rougerie, who pioneered some of the underwater habitats Belgian architect Vasant Calvo has also conceptualized underwater ocean scrapers, while Danish firm B.

  • I G has imagined entire floating cities way may travel deeper than ever before without physically moving out of our seats.

  • Cousteau points to breakthroughs in automation and underwater mobility that could take us further than the naked Aiken See a U Visa.

  • Thomas vehicles are amazing.

  • They have a very practical reason they are able to go places for longer periods of time without having to have a human being on them on, Just like Jules Verne's Nautilus powering up these vehicles may 1 day be electric and even renewable.

  • There's enough energy that could be extracted from the ocean to power the world's current needs without creating significant environmental impact.

  • One such piece of technology is called Oh Tech Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion.

  • Oh, Tech converts the cold water temperature from the deepwater to the fairly warm surface temperature to create energy.

  • Imagine how amazing that piece of technology could be to help solving some of the climate change related issues.

  • As we continue to develop as we continue to expand as we continue to add more people on this planet that will need that energy.

  • So where does that leave us now?

  • Will these breakthroughs take us further and deeper into the ocean on like Cousteau, we may 1 day find ourselves living there.

  • Well, maybe not just yet.

  • It is absolutely possible.

  • Is it desirable?

  • That is something I'm on the fence on for now, Just like his grandfather, their future of technology lays in exploring this untouched frontier.

  • My grandfather, he was a pioneer.

  • He inspired hundreds of millions around the world for over five decades.

  • It opens my eyes to what is possible out there, what does need to happen and what should be learned from our ocean world.

  • Ah, here's a Halloween decoration that's both a trick and to treat.

  • It's a treat to see, assuming you're not afraid of absolutely horrifyingly green man eating spiders.

  • It's a trick from a retired toymaker who used a crane and a lot of ingenuity to build this disturbing decoration outside his home in upstate New York.

  • He says 2020 was the perfect time to do this.

  • But poor little Miss Muffin, I mean, should have a heart attack.

  • If that spider sat down beside her, it would send anyone wandering away.

  • It took a torrential lot of work to build.

  • It wouldn't fit in any seller.

  • I mean, that size, that thing could be anything but reclusive.

  • I'm Carla Zeus.

  • You know, I bet Lakeville, Conn.

  • Is beautiful this time of year.

  • It's where we found Indian Mountain School.
