Virgin Oceanic – 5 Ocean Exploration

Virgin Oceanic – will be exploring the bottom of the deepest parts of the oceans of the world.  Data from video cameras taken down on the five dives will be fed back to Google Earth and used to create a 3D deep sea virtual mirror.

The Virgin Oceanic data will add high definition data for the Mariana Trench (Pacific), Puerto Rico Trench (Atlantic), Diamantina Trench (Indian), South Sandwich Trench (Southern), and Molloy Deep (Arctic) – some of the most interesting and least known deep sea features on the planet.

Here’s a YouTube of the craft zipping around the ocean bottom.
