Nautilus Live is back, live streaming deep sea exploration!


#1

One of my favorite live streams just started back up, and ya’ll should check it out.

Nautilus Live is the live stream for the scientific ship E/V nautilus. You get to watch scientists piloting underwater ROVs livestreaming from the bottom of the ocean. They’ve discovered shipwrecks, hydrothermal vents, brine pools, coral reefs, and even a few new species of sea creatures! It’s really fun to see scientists at work, and hear them get really excited about finding a cool octopus.

If you’ve never watched before, you can watch some stream highlights on their Youtube channel. Some of my favorite videos are Brine Pool: Hot Tub of Despair, cute flapjack octopus, and WWII Airplane wreck.

Right now they’re looking at some clams and shrimp in the San Francisco Bay. They stream almost 24/7 during the summer, as long as the seas are calm. They also have a question box on their website, and they answer questions live on the stream.
