Supercavitation is the use of cavitation effects to create a bubble of gas inside a liquid; greatly reducing the friction allowing for the craft to travel at high rates of speed.

The Nautilus

My design of the Nautilus from Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. I used the forms and orientation of a swimming squid to inspire the shape. My design uses supercavitation, allowing the submarine to travel at high rates of speed.
