The Unknown Ocean
The Unknown Ocean: Exploring Inner Space project has created educational and informational programming about deep-sea exploration. This project, which is funded by the NOAA Office of Education, has created exciting video productions suited for the public and aquarium audiences in particular.
During a dive, hundreds of creatures can be found. 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.
Telepresence is a version of video conferencing that the Inner Space Center uses to connect scientists on shore and on the boat simultaneously.The ISC stream live video from the research and exploration vessels to the ISC mission control where streamed to the internet for public viewing around the world.
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 follow have high definition video cameras that record the live streaming video.
