The ocean is full of history. There are shipwrecks and artifacts just waiting to be discovered!
The ocean is gigantic. It’s the biggest body of water on earth, but only 7% of it has been explored. Why do we explore the ocean?
We find all sorts of creatures when we explore the deep ocean. Depending on the depth and the location of the dive, we can see a variety of creatures. We have seen octopi, corals, fish, to sharks and unknown species. One of the main reasons for ocean exploration is to study the biology of the ocean.
What’s an ROV? An ROV is a remotely operated vehicle used by research teams as a submersible.
ROVs are tethered to ships. They are controlled by a remote either on ship or land. They are powered by the ship. For the purpose of ocean exploration, the ROVs we use have high definition video cameras that record the live streaming video.
The Inner Space Center streams live video from research and exploration vessels to the world. How? With cutting-edge telepresence!
