They Were Doing Underwater Research When Suddenly Something Massive Came To Say Hello [VIDEO]
An ROV or remotely operated vehicle is a mobile robot designed to work in aquatic environments. Diving underwater and actually going down there can be an expensive and unsafe affair. ROVs are a wonderful alternative because they are controlled remotely by copper or fibre-optic cables. It's pretty cool.
Not all ROVs do boring research and come back up. Some run into stuff that is utterly fascinating. Here's a story of when researchers ran into something completely unexpected! You will be fascinated!
