We had to remove one of the robotic manipulator arms from the D2 ROV after it sprung a small leak. Fortunately, GFOE engineers were able to resuscitate it last night! If you watched today's dive, you got to see it back in action. #BrokenArm ... See MoreSee Less
The GFOE team recently saw this small #octopus in the deep waters off of American Samoa. He quickly retreated into hiding after being confronted by the 10,000-lbs Deep Discoverer ROV.

Unfortunately the winds and seas picked up more than anticipated this morning, and we decided to end today's dive early. #Ocean exploration is never easy! Keep following along as we hope to try again tomorrow... #Okeanos ... See MoreSee Less

I fucking love science
We are LIVE from the bottom of the Pacific ocean! NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer is collecting critical baseline information of unknown and poorly known deepwater areas in American Samoa and Samoa. These ocean areas are practically unexplored, so who knows what we'll see!
You won't see anything but blue for a few minutes, the robot is still descending through the ocean. Stay tuned, we'll be at the sea floor shortly!

The GFOE team is back on the #Okeanos Explorer! This time we are exploring deep ocean environments east of American Samoa in the southern Pacific. Follow along with us #LIVE (pending conditions) from about 2pm-10pm EST for the next 12 days:
