The Exosuit will help a team of underwater archaeologists to explore the buried treasures of the ancient shipwreck in Antikythera island, in Greece.

Divers are revisiting the famed Antikythera wreck equipped with a one-of-a-kind diving outfit known as the Exosuit.

Sponge divers first discovered the 2,000-year-old wreck at the bottom of the Aegean Sea in 1900.

They salvaged fragments of statues, jewelry and the Antikythera mechanism, an astronomical calculator often considered the world’s oldest computer.
