Scuba System. Early Scuba Equipment was Bigger and

diving. Gases have changed over the years, the most
commonly used gas now is nitrox, which
allows divers to stay down longer, and has
a higher concentration of oxygen than early
Gases used. SCUBA was one of the Biggest advances in
the History of Marine Science, as it allowed
us to go place underwater that we had never
been able to go before. Scuba has changed drastically over its very short
50 year life time. Due to a serious car accident he was not able
