Watch: A robot just explored 2,100 metres below the Pacific Ocean

From July 10 to September 30, a team from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) exploration ship Okeanos Explorer, is going to be mapping the deep waters of the Hawaiian Archipelago in the North Pacific Ocean. As of about 4 hours ago, two of the team’s robotic submersibles hit the sea floor some 2,100 metres below the surface, and captured amazing footage of a place no human has ever set eyes on. They’re live-streaming the dive right now,which you can view above, and while there’s not a while lot to see but the team packing up on the boat, you can also rewind to the beginning to relive the entire sea floor exploration.
