The carbon-fiber submarine resembles an underwater airplane with "wind shields" that remove slipstream pressure, and incorporates fighter jet technology and "wings" to move up or down. Branson eventually hopes to explore depths of 35,000 feet, or greater than the height of Mount Everest. But the $669,000 vehicle designed by Hawkes Ocean Technologies can only currently dive to 130 feet.

The sub does look nice thats true , but 130 feet? I dive deeper than that with my equipment so for $670,000 I would at least want to go deeper than with my normal diving equipment :/
