An evening with Blue Abyss – Tonight!


If you’re in or around Chelmsford, UK this evening, don’t miss the chance to hear John Vickers present his vision of Blue Abyss. This ground-breaking project aims to build a state-of-the-art facility that will become the world’s premier aquatic and space extreme environment research, development and training centre.

Brainchild of ex-forces diving instructor and technology consultant John Vickers, planning began back in September 2014 and John has already secured some powerful supporters from the world of aerospace, science, scuba diving and education. This unique aquatic centre will house the largest and deepest indoor pool of its kind globally. Blue Abyss will be located on a 6-acre site at the University of Essex’s Knowledge Gateway Innovation Park in Colchester, providing good national and international transport links.

To find out more, join John tonight at Anglia Ruskin University’s Mike Salmon Building on its Chelmsford campus from 6:30 – 8:00pm.

Hosted by the Institute of Engineering & Technology and Chelmsford Science & Engineering Society, and joined by Mike Hitchens from Pell Frischmann, listen to John exploring human curiosity, describing the journey so far and what lies ahead. Enjoy refreshments and a chance to talk to the team afterwards.

There’s no need to book tickets, just turn up. We look forward to seeing you there!
