Interview with a deep-sea submarine pilot

Marine biologist Al Dove recently went on an expedition to Brazil's Abrolhos reef, where he was part of a team that studied life in the depths where light begins to fade—an area called the mesophotic zone. To reach those twilight waters, Dove and his colleagues traveled aboard the Johnson Sea Link, a deepwater research submarine that seats a pilot and a passenger inside a five ft. diameter sphere made of clear acrylic.

In this video, Dove interviews the Johnson Sea Link's pilot, Don Liberatore, to find out how Liberatore ended up with such an amazing job.
