Jason to the Rescue
During an expedition to the East Pacific Rise in May 2007, using the dexterous mechanical arms of the remotely operated vehicle Jason, pilots and scientists removed lava chunks from a singed ocean-bottom sesimometer, freeing it to float back to the surface. (The National Deep Subergence Facility, ROV Jason, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the National Science Foundation. Movie by Tim Silva, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.)
