This image provided by NOAA, shows a baby octopus (graneledone verrucosa) as it moves across the seafloor as ROV Deep Discoverer (D2) explores Veatch Canyon. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s ship Okeanos Explorer and its robotic sub are providing live coverage of a expedition running until Aug. 16, 2013, off Nantucket, that is allowing other scientists and everyday people to follow along. Until now, the world of the deep sea floor has mostly been the province of scientists where a handful of researchers would huddle on a ship and watch the video from below, take notes, and two or three years later write a scientific paper.
