Ocean Intervention III, commercial ship at Deepwater Horizon disaster
At the request of the U.S. Coast Guard, WHOI investigators Rich Camilli, Chris Reddy, and Sean Sylva were taken by fast boat from the R/V Endeavor to the Ocean Intervention III to attempt the near-impossible: collecting a pristine sample of the oil and gas flowing from the well at the bottom of the Gulf, before it mixed with seawater. The OI III is equipped with a helipad (left), massive cranes and winches (right), and two remotely operated vehicles (housed in cages amidships).
