Andrea Macdonald, Founder ideaXme interviews John Vickers, Founder and CEO of Blue Abyss.

Blue Abyss will be a high tech pioneering training and extreme adventure centre. It will be "the most comprehensive deep sea and space research, training and test facility of its kind in the world, unmatched in its breadth of configuration".

Blue Abyss’ primary function will be to enable extreme environment development, both human and robotic, ranging from the offshore energy industry through to the growing human spaceflight sector and adventure tourism.

In this interview John Vickers talks of:

The need for his planned facility - from resilience research and human progress and exploration to repositioning the United Kingdom as a world innovator. Blue Abyss, which aims to be a world leading training facility, will cater for both the offshore energy sector and government and commercial space exploration endeavours as well adventure tourism. The gruelling journey to reach this point in the project. His personal resilience, necessary to get this far.

"Here is an opportunity to introduce new robotic technologies that deliver the strong industrial growth the UK seeks. It's an opportunity to give children the skills and training they need to access the science and technology internships and jobs of the future. It's an opportunity to capitalise on the burgeoning human spaceflight market and welcome a new era of space exploration. And it's an opportunity to secure a lasting legacy for today’s society and for future generations to come". John Vickers, Founder and CEO Blue Abyss.
