Okeanos Explorer sets sail to the deep waters off the U.S. southeast coast
Join the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer mission team as they journey into unknown deepwater areas and broadcast live video from the ocean floor to the surface from June 12 to July 1. Remotely operated vehicle (ROV) dives will reveal a first look at unexplored deep-sea corals and sponges, unusual fish, octopuses and other cephalopods, and historical shipwrecks.
The live video feed is available to anyone online, giving the public a front row seat as the new mission, Windows to the Deep 2018: Exploration of the U.S. Southeast Continental Margin, unfolds. On June 14, the public is also invited to connect directly with the mission team through our Reddit Science “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) and ask us anything about the current expedition and our findings. Join the scientists and crew for must-see deep sea TV!
