1. One World One Ocean presents, in association with Liquid Pictures 3D -- Mission Aquarius -- a project of Aquarius Reef Base. Join the expedition at oneworldoneocean.org/aquarius --

    Introducing an open-source, tele-robotic submarine with live streaming video. You control it from the surface, and you see what it sees. Gone are the days of super expensive remotely operated vehicles. Now Open ROV is crowd-sourcing exploration, because a lot of amazing discoveries were made by chance, and the more people out there exploring, the more chance we have of understanding the mysteries of the ocean. Join us on the first real test of this exciting new technology in a dynamic ocean environment, at Aquarius.

    "It shouldn't take a research grant to do exploration, it should take curiosity," says creator Eric Stackpole.

    Since 1993, America's "inner space station" has helped us understand the disappearance of coral reefs, train NASA astronauts for space and research sea sponges, the source of two cancer drugs. The discoveries made at Aquarius have opened our eyes to how little we really know about the vast complexity of the ocean. It is one of the planet's most important brain trusts, and this is part of its last scheduled mission.

    [We featured the same species in the video that Radiolab features in the episode, so we're missing some, but you'll get the general idea. Thanks for watching. Please pass it along!]
