Welcome to the Inner Space Center

The Inner Space Center (ISC) is a one-of-a-kind national facility that supports live ocean exploration via telepresence technology. Located at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, the ISC is home to a diverse team of ocean scientists, engineers, education professionals, and video producers. The team works with cutting-edge technology to facilitate, capture, produce, and promote underwater exploration in real time.  Browse the video galleries to learn more about the ISC’s projects; watch video highlights from previous expeditions on the ISC YouTube Channel.


To inspire the next generation of explorers, the Inner Space Center will facilitate open access to ocean exploration and scientific research, as well as push the boundaries of telepresence technology.


The Inner Space Center connects diverse audiences to a global network of exploration in real time.  We enable scientists and students to participate remotely in expeditions while engaging with the general public to enhance the broader impacts of their research.
