Scott Carpenter | Sealab | American Experience | PBS

From astronaut to aquanaut. Scott Carpenter was on the forefront of US military explorations of both space and sea.

As Americans were becoming entranced with the effort to land a man on the moon, these divers, including one of NASA’s most famous astronauts, were breaking depth barrier records underwater. SEALAB tells the little-known story of the daring program that tested the limits of human endurance and revolutionized the way humans explore the ocean.

The documentary film premieres Tuesday, February 12 at 9/8c on PBS. Learn more at
