In 1969, this historical model accompanied four scientists as part of the Tektite I underwater project for two months in their research. Tektite I was a government underwater experiment that took place from February 15 to April 15, 1969 in Lameshur Bay near St. John, in the Virgin Islands. Conducted by the U.S. Navy, NASA and the US Department of the Interior in cooperation with General Electrics, four aquanauts lived in the underwater habitat at a depth of 15 meters during these 60 days. The aim of the experiment was not only to explore the seabed, but also to study the behavior of the scientists under these conditions. The Super PH 500M was also rated with 13 points.
What is probably less well known: The DS-2 Super PH500M was not only used in the water, but also in the endless expanses of space! At least fictitious... In the cult television series "UFO", which was first broadcast in September 1969, George Cole, alias SHADO member Paul Roper, wore the 500s over his space suit.
