The Open_Sailing project is an international community of scientists, engineers, architects and many others who are trying to develop an International Ocean Station. The open-source project aims to create something similar to the International Space Station on the sea, a place where people can study the ocean and learn to live sustainably in a marine environment. The project began as an apocalyptic design response unit, but has evolved into a voluntary community of amateurs, inventors and scientists who study everything from aquaculture to desalination.
