Nautilus Season Update

Written by

Hello explorers! 

We have had an exciting season so far.  Just in case you haven't been able to tune in we wanted to give you an update! This season we have been working with two ships, the E/V Nautilus and the NOAA Okeanos Explorer. 

What if I told you that one of the final battles of World War II happened only a few miles off Rhode Island?

Another Side of Science

There are more sides to science than you think.

The TREET program is in the thick of it. Transforming remotely conducted research one day at a time as they work in direct communication and interact with the E/V Nautilus. They are studying the Caribbean Sea's most active submarine volcano, Kick 'em Jenny.

E/V Nautilus, Back in the Game

Written by

It's been a little over a week since the Nautilus has been searching the depths for the next big discovery. Not to downplay anything here - I mean, they have been at sea since early June you know. So far this summer they have been exploring the “Unknown America.”

Letter from the [Video] Editor vol.3

Written by

It's been a while my friends! I'll save the small talk, that's not why you're here.

Dr. Dwight Coleman, the director of the Inner Space Center, left last week to board the E/V Nautilus and become the Expedition Leader.  

Yesterday, on August 4th 2014, the watchstander team took advantage of some E/V Nautilus transit time and ventured to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) to see the new National Science Foundation research vessel Sikuliaq. Based out of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Seward Marine Center in Seward, Alaska, this 261 foot polar-class 5 ice breaker is equipped to break through 2.5 feet of ice and sail with up to 26 scientists and a full crew. Reluctant to miss any trip to WHOI, the presence of an ice-breaker on the east coast further sweetened the prospective excursion, and upon seeing the R/V Sikuliaq, we were surely not disappointed.
