    New exhibit at the Mystic Aquarium allows visitors to explore in real time

    For the first time, visitors to the Mystic Aquarium can participate in undersea exploration.

    “Challenge of the Deep" opens today in the new Nautilus Live Theater. The Norwich Bulletinreports the exhibition will allow people around the world to watch ocean exploration live, as it happens, and scientists will be able to virtually participate in undersea exploration. It will also feature live connections with Nautilusteam members.

    Seventy one percent of our planet is water, but relatively little is known about what lies beneath the surface.

    Telepresence is transforming the way in which scientists, students and the general public experience and understand deep-sea exploration, inspiring the explorers of tomorrow.
