Built with the support of the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation and NASA the Benjamin Franklin had a very short career. Designed to be used for training astronauts, she made very few descents, the most notable of which was a thirty day drift dive.
Picture was taken, using the "Painting with Light" technique where the subject is exposed for a longer period of time (usually a bulb exposure of anywhere between 15 and 30 sec), and is then "painted" with a powerful flashlight or spotlight.
