Russian Scientists Present Liquid Breathing Technology

For many years, humans have been fascinated by animals that have the ability to breathe underwater. For instance, the simple fish has been able to captivate us by never having to leave the water for air. The human race could benefit quite a bit from being able to breathe underwater: drownings could be prevented, and industries such as shellfish diving could be made much more efficient. However, for the time being, it’s common knowledge that it is not a good idea to breathe underwater.

Animal familiarized itself with its new surroundings and started to breathe
However, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin is planning to change the fact of being able to breathe underwater through his project on liquid breathing. The first test run has been quite a success: a Daschund was placed inside and special liquid-filled tank. While anyone with a brain would expect it to drown and die a slow and painful death, the animal familiarized itself with its new surroundings and started to breathe as if nothing had happened.
