Here’s Your Daily Deep-Sea Exploration Robot Livestream

August 12, 2013 | Andy Cush

Thanks to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this week, you’ll be able to take an afternoon break to the deepest recesses of the Atlantic Ocean. From now until Friday, the NOAA’s Okeanos Explorer and an accompanying unmanned submarine are traversing the Northeast U.S. Canyons, and live streaming the entire thing. To tune in, use the player below. The stream is narrated by a few of the scientists controlling the underwater bot, so you can get some context if you want it. Alternately, just mute the sound, turn on some appropriately atmospheric music, and zone out.
