We know more about the surface of Mars than the bottom of our oceans. Six times more humans have walked on the moon than explored the Mariana Trench, Earth’s deepest natural point. Equally alien, both hide unimaginable wonders, for now.

Veronika was the perfect model for our celestial, underwater skydiving test shoot. She’s one of those inspiring humans that make you stand back and evaluate what you’ve been doing with your life. An A&E doctor, scuba and skydiver, private pilot-student and POSSUM Scientist-Astronaut Candidate pursuing a career in space medicine, she’s who I would want in my exploration party.
