People can live under water - level 2, A12

One scientist from Israel made a special machine. With this machine, people can stay under water for a very long time. The system is simple and the machine does what fish do when they live under water.

The machine gets air directly from water. There is a lot of air in water. For example, in 200 metres under water, there is about 1.5% of air in water.

This machine can be also used in submarines which can stay under water in dangerous areas.

People tried to get air from water before but this is the first time when the technology isn’t expensive and it isn’t difficult to make such a machine.
