Scientific advances have steadily contributed to an increased understanding of the planet Earth. Because the ocean covers about two-thirds of our planet, it is of paramount importance that we explore as much of it as humanly possible. Well, now, as robotically possible.
According to engineers at Stanford University, only 5% of the ocean has been seen by human eyes. As for the past decade, robots have been our eyes when we couldn’t see. They have played a significant role in developing the understanding of our vast oceans. In a recent interview with Scott Stoneburner, President of RobotStop.com, he said, “We are just now breaking the surface in regards to advancement in underwater robotics.

“NASA has explored with robots for more than a decade, from the stalwart rovers on Mars to R2 on the station,” said Michael Gazarik, NASA’s associate administrator for space technology in Washington. “Our investment in robotic technology development is helping us to bolster productivity by applying robotics technology and devices to fortify and enhance individual human capabilities, performance and safety in space.” …
