Solve an Impossible Problem

What invention will break the notion of “it’s impossible?”

In the late 1800s, people wondered how to capture the underwater world on film. Many thought it was impossible, given the delicate machinery of cameras. Around the turn of the century, French scientist Louis Boutan wanted to photograph scenes from under the waves – scenes no one had seen. Boutan’s challenge took almost 8 years to perfect, but in 1899, Boutan patented an underwater
camera (complete with lights) and as a result, opened up a whole new world for us to see.
