Abstract
    Humans have always been fascinated by the deep sea. Early sketches of submarines in the 16th century led to the construction of the first underwater vehicle in 1623. By the 18th century, submarines were used for warfare. In 1870, Jules Verne created a fictional world of sea monsters and life aboard the mystical submarine Nautilus that could descend 20 km into the sea. The novel captured the imagination of millions of people.
