RV Atlantis steward Carl Wood chats with the Alvin pilot inside the sub during a recovery in the Equatorial Pacific. Launched in 1964, the sub's most famous exploits include exploring the first known hydrothermal vent sites in the 1970s and surveying the wreck of RMS Titanic in 1986. HOV Alvin is owned by the Navy, but is operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and is part of the National Deep Submergence Facility.
