Alvin: Deep Submersible


The deep-diving submersible Alvin takes scientists into the depths of the ocean to give them a first-person, up-close look at the things that happen there and the things that live there. After its 2014 upgrade, the sub (and its support team) is even more capable and ready to explore and to spur the imagination of a new generation of deep-sea scientists and engineers.
