Venerable Ocean Explorer

In 41 years of operation, the submersible Alvin has logged more than 4,300 dives and 30,000 hours exploring the deep ocean, diving a combined total of more than 9 million meters along the way. Though a replacement sub is being designed right now, the oceanographic workhorse is expected to continue its work through at least 2010.
