Back in the 80s the NBS was at Marshall Space Flight Center where I was working at the time. Lockheed had a dive team there that did most of the work but they used to use certified divers from the rest of the work force there as safety divers. If you were on the list you might end up getting called once or twice a month to act as a safety diver. They even gave you hazardous duty pay for your time in the tank.

I tried to get on as a safety diver after I got certified but there were too many people in line ahead of me and then the NBS was moved to JSFC.

But a 'friend' of mine was on the list and every time that he dived in the NBS he'd call me up and say, "Hey, I dove in the tank today. They pay me extra for that, you know."

Actually I quite like Herzog's work. He's a great auteur and he appreciates good work :) :blink:

So am I - especially the documentaries. I really liked Grizzly Man and Little Dieter Needs to Fly.

And speaking of documentaries, I saw one a couple of weeks ago that I really liked, Deep Water, about the first solo around the world yacht race:
