Robert Ballard's latest

Here's a story on the latest adventure of Robert Ballard (He Who Found the Titanic). He’s back at the Black Sea, testing out a new vessel for deployment next year. This one has a huge network of scientists all over the globe tied in through internet connections, so that experts can be called it to consult on whatever the "Okeanos Explorer" finds. And it could find almost anything--the scientists at NOAA intend to send it to places that no one has ever explored!
The caption of the picture above (from NOAA's website) reads:

The ex-CAPABLE soon to be NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer under repair and refit in dry dock in Seattle, WA.
