Beyond this world-record attempt, The Longest Swim will also be the first science and environmental expedition of its kind. A team of researchers from 12 scientific institutions including NASA and the Argonne National Laboratory will conduct studies on 8 different subjects during The Longest Swim. From the microbiome, the giant phytoplankton, plastic pollution up to space exploration, this adventure will be a unique opportunity to collect data and learn more about the oceans and human body in extreme conditions.
