Liquid breathing (wikipedia.org)

That's a tube with air so the human can breathe even though it's submerged in liquid.

This reminded me of the Lost Symbol book (which is also mentioned in the article. For reference, it's from the same author of The Da Vinci Code).

I recall reading this in the book and regarding it as junk science, but it really exists after all. The other "science" mentioned in the book though...

I never imagined my "bogus science" detector to fail me in this unexpected way. I guess I have to check not only for "bogus" science, but also for fantastic yet real science!

reminds me of the film Abyss

Neat, thanks. I just learned the word "aliquot" from that article.
