Poseidon Mystery Island is a breakthrough in vacation destination. Unlike any other hotel in the world, this one wouldn’t be constructed on land. Instead it would be an underwater metropolis. At a depth of around 1000 this hotel would have 1200 square feet of living space, enough room to accommodate eleven people. Poseidon Mystery Island is also much more than an underwater hotel. It’s a first class hotel whose guest are treated like kings with luxuries amenities such as private staterooms, paneled interiors made from exotic hardwoods, plush carpeting. Among other things visitors get to enjoy fine dining, stunning views of the surrounding lush coral habitat, and the opportunity to dive directly from the hotel’s airlock. At one end of this complex kitchen will lie a reception lounge and 3,000-square-foot rotating restaurant and bar. Directly opposite to this will be a library, a conference room, a wedding chapel, a spa and the largest underwater accommodation in the world, the 1,200-square-foot “Nautilus” suite. All this comes at a premium price of $15,000 a night, and there’s nowhere did I read about a complimentary breakfast. They better surprise me with some good mints on the pillows.
I think that Poseidon Mystery Island would vacation spot we all fantasize about. It intrigues me very much that we now that the technology available to live under water and still have all the amenities from luxury to safety. Nothing was forgotten about when this hotel was designed. Not only is the underwater palace a form of entertainment but if built would be a breakthrough in science. Having both scuba dived and snorkeled coral reefs twice, I think it would be awesome to create an underwater society. If there is such a thing as reincarnation then I’m hoping ill be made into a sea-creature. For years, the earth has struggled to provide adequate living space for humans. Humans have overpopulated the earth long ago, and with over 6.5 billion of us here we have severely damaged the eco cycle. Alternate living spaces are constantly being considered, such as space stations the moon but why not the ocean? Water occupies 70% of the earth’s surface area which is plenty of room for aquatic expansion. I kind of frown on the idea of building on coral reefs because those are disappearing just as fast as the rainforests. The biggest advantage of living on/under water is no taxes.
An underwater living vicinity goes hand in hand with scientific concepts. Actually for that matter any structure relies on the principals of physics to stay aloft, from bridges to skyscrapers. The scientific connection that is most obvious has to do with our study of forces. Bruce Jones proclaims that the interior living space of his hotel will remain at atmospheric pressure so that people avoid decompression sickness. The pressure under water at feet 1000 depth will be far greater than normal atmospheric pressure of 14.7psi. However the forces must remain balanced to ensure the hotel will experience an implosion and squish all of its visitors. This right here is the same principal that goes into the submarines and exactly the opposite of what goes into airplanes and spaceships. To overcome this submarines are made up of a thick metal encasing. Poseidon Mystery Island will use similar design techniques however it will built of high strength transparent acrylic. Vertical and Horizontal forces also exist. To keep the underwater metropolis at the correct depth mass will need to be added and subtracted as guests arrive and disembark. This is related to a buoyancy compensator used for scuba diving. Horizontal forces such as currents and big mammals like whales need to be taken into consideration so that they don’t break the supports. This I relate to houses vs. tornados. Houses are very strong vertically so that they can hold people, furniture and snow on the roof. However houses usually don’t stand a chance against the high winds of a tornado because these force are horizontal.
This hotel is makes Las Vegas look like childs playground. It even makes the pyramids look lame just because so much more engineering and technology was incorporated in this design. I don’t think I’ll be staying in a hotel like this one for another 20 years, and even at that point I can’t be 100% positive that my financial state will allow me to spend $15,000 a night. So unfortunately this hotel when built or the other one that is supposed to be constructed by the time I graduate in 2008 probably won’t affect my life in the near future. I do however believe that this could ultimately help solve the problem of living area. This does however give me an idea to become a real-estate agent on the Red Sea.
