Exploring the deep with the hybrid remotely operated vehicle, or HROV

The oceans average two miles in depth and in some places plunge almost seven miles - deeper than Mount Everest is high. Researchers at WHOI are developing a new underwater robot to explore these depths. Until now, these places have been beyond the reach of conventional technology. View various Quicktime animations of the HROV to the right.
