Good call. But wearing sunglasses. Your boy never flies when sunny. Only into the clouds.

The last line of the article:
The Necker Nymph claims "near-zero" environmental impact because its "positive buoyancy prevents the sub from landing on a reef, and its low light and noise emissions ensure the fragile ocean ecosystems remain undisturbed," Virgin said.

Positive bouyancy? Meaning there's no ballast and it relies on its dive planes to remain underwater? If the engines lose power while under water that thing will shoot to the surface with more force than a political talk show host's mouth.
