The next Ocean Explorer, set to launch in 2019, will be the largest and most powerful ocean explorer ever built.
Its design is based on the design of the USS Enterprise from Star Trek, and features two hulls and a pair of giant watertight compartments.
It is designed to carry more than 4,000 tons of cargo.
The ship is also expected to be able to reach depths of 3,500 feet and travel at a speed of up to 6,500 mph.
The project was funded by the Department of Defense and NASA.
The design has received more than $2.6 billion in federal funding, including the Department’s Advanced Capability-2 and Advanced Capabilities-3 awards.
