This video shows some of the stunning imagery captured by the high definition cameras on the Little Hercules ROV on June 30, 2010 during the vehicles second dive down to Kawio Barat volcano.
Join the Exploratorium as we connect live for the first time with NOAA's newest ship, the Okeanos Explorer. The Okeanos is on its maiden voyage, traveling from Hawaii to Indonesia. We will talk with scientists on the ship and discover what kind of research they are conducting. A compilation of video clips collected in deepwater by the Little Hercules Remotely Operated Vehicle and camera platform during an ROV shakedown cruise aboard NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer offshore Kona, Hawaii (March 2010). Sea life can sometimes serve as a marker to help navigators stay on track. Shorty Bertelmann describes how one such living marker, a pod of dolphins, helped him see what navigation is really about. What motivates modern navigators? That depends on who you ask. But many explain their passion for voyaging in terms of kuleana--responsibility. The intertwining of astronomy, Hawaiian ancestry, and traditional navigation are the subject of this video featuring astrophysicist Paul Coleman, cultural historian Koa Rice, and captain Billy Richards. On March 1st, we connected live with scientists aboard the scientific drilling vessel the JOIDES Resolution off the coast of Antarctica. Meet geologists Rob Dunbar, Carlota Escutia, and Christina Riesselman and learn about their historic expedition to Antarctica that is helping reveal the history of Earth's climate and teaching us about our climate future. This short video summarizes all of the steps in collecting an ice core using the Deep Ice Sheet Coring (DISC) drill. Thomas Bauska, of Oregon State University helped Heidi Roop put together this video. Exploratorium graphic artist David Barker describes the physics of baseball bats, and makes some sweet music in the process! Staff educator Modesto Tamez tells how he gets students exploring electromagnets, a great preparation for making an electric motor.
