Recently, Portuguese reporter Vitor Hugo Alvarenga contacted us to find out more about The Seasteading Institute, as part of a feature for high-profile news outlet TVI24.pt about the seasteading movement. Entitled “Viver no Mar”, the three-piece feature focuses on The Seasteading Institute, on SeaLand, and on the concept of seasteading in general.
Thanks to Eelco Hoogendoorn and a host of valuable community support, our first offical Engineering report is now available for general parusal. You can pick it up from our new (and still in-progress) Research page, or download the PDF directly here.
