Mission: Finding solid proof of the past reality of Atlantis if Plato's lost island existed at all.
The mission may sound impossible, but progress has already been made. We now have three items of evidence that prove something big happened 9600 BCE. Though these don't prove Atlantis existed, they do support the thesis of its past existence. These, combined with a plausible geological and socio-genetic back story, create a bulwark of circumstantial evidence that is at least interesting, if not compelling.
Imagine the impact on history if direct proof of Atlantis itself were found. Ancient Egypt would become "recent" by comparison. The gap between the end of Atlantis and the beginning of our own history is longer than our entire history. And currently there is no way of knowing how far the history of Atlantis may have gone back, if indeed that island empire did exist.

"Arguments Against Atlantis"
Yes, you read that right!
Because we do not have proof of Atlantis, it is quite possible that Plato's story was just that a story of pure fiction. Is there any argument which could adequately disprove Atlantis? Yes, but there are some caveats in the pudding. Check it out.
Mission: Atlantis The Book
Currently, the book, Mission: Atlantis, is under development. Some of the highlights of the book can be found by clicking on the Mission: Atlantis "Book" link in the menu.
In addition, we are developing the idea of conducting Atlantis tours in order to generate funding and greater interest in future expeditions. Such tours, might include visits to the locations associated with Plato's story of Atlantis, and also the locations that might be related to the children of Atlantis, long after the tragedy that destroyed that island empire.
