At the age of 21, the life of Ernest François PONCIN was overthrown when he read the latest novel written by his favourite author "20.000 leagues under
the seas". He was immediately very impressed by the rich descriptions of this submarine world, yet unknown, and he developed a passion for this new and
young science, oceanography.
In 1886 when his father died, he wasted the familiy fortune by creating the Sternoptyx and living his dreams.
