    I want to invite you to watch a bit of history Thursday morning.

    If all goes according to plan, I'll be broadcasting live from inside 
Aquarius, the world's only undersea research lab. It's the first time a 
reporter has ever broadcast live from Aquarius. It's 65 feet below the 
surface on a coral reef nine miles off Key Largo in the Atlantic ocean. 
You'll see and hear details about the aquanauts researching climate 
change impact on reefs, acidification of the oceans, the mysterious role 
of sponges in keeping reefs clean of toxins from onshore runoff, and 
more. The aquanauts live for ten days in the undersea lab.

    If you want to watch:
    11:40am Eastern time: NBC 6 in South Florida, and online at www.nbc6.net
    11:50am Eastern time: MSNBC
    If you miss the live broadcast, watch the video later at www.nbc6.net
