Deep-Sea submersibles are a way for us to study the
mysterious world of the deep ocean without being
crushed by the tremendous pressure of the ocean.

The Nereid is a deep sea submersible used to
collect samples from the deep. The equipment
it uses is common in most submersibles.
Submersibles are slowly lowered from the
ship’s deck into the water by a robotic arm.
After being released into the water, the submersible
then slowly descends deep into the ocean.
Deep beneath the ocean, the water is dark and
murky, reducing visibility as you can see.
View portals allow us to see the amazing life deep below
the surface from the comfort of the submersible.
The deep sea has been and still is a mystery to us. It
is only recently that we have been able to explore
the deep. In fact, the vast majority of life in the
deep sea has yet to be discovered.
