The Great Blue Hole is a large underwater sinkhole off the coast of Belize. It lies near the center of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 62 miles from the mainland of Belize City. This large submarine vertical cave measures 984 feet in diameter and 407 feet deep. With its beautiful, clear water and the variety of wild marine life residing in its depths, the enormous blue hole is a popular scuba diving destination. Jacques Cousteau revealed the secrets of the mysterious Blue Hole to millions of viewers in 1971 through the television series The Undersea World of Jaques-Yves Cousteau. The Great Blue Hole is part of the larger Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, a World Heritage site of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

Blue Lagoon is the country’s top tourist attraction. The warm milky-blue spa is fed by mineral-rich heated seawater from the nearby geothermal plant. The water temperature in the bathing and swimming area of the lagoon is averages 37-39 °C. The spa is located in a lava field in Grindavik on the Reykjanes Peninsula, southwestern Iceland. That first sublime dip into the warm, cloudy blue waters feels like you’re taking the bath of your life. Watching the rising steam dance and swirl above the waters is a sight to behold, especially if you’re there when the sun sets.

The Karma use a plug-in hybrid technology – called Q DRIVE – developed by Quantum Technologies, which will serve as a basis for all future models from Fisker. The main idea of the Q DRIVE system is that a small gasoline engine turns the car generator, which charges the lithium ion batteries, powering the electric motor and driving the rear wheels.
