Abstract

In 1961 Hannes Keller demonstrated within 14 days in Toulon and Washington two dives to a depth of 215 m and one to 300 m. These exposures to high pressures with their lack of effect on mental and physical competence indicated a break through for deep diving with helium, with which difficulties had arisen during decompres­sion in earlier trials. The specialists were impressed less by the depths reached than by the rapid decompression without unpleasant sequelae for the diver.
