allows students to explore a seafloor observatory geographically or by topic. Learn about seafloor animals, hydrothermal vents, mid-ocean ridges, axial volcano, lava flow, and technology and tools. Operate (remotely) a vehicle that takes you to the seafloor near an active submarine volcano. Explore black smoker vents, new lava flows, and unusual life forms.

Interesting Fact:

Our Earth is a warm planet sailing through cold space. Much of the rocky interior of our planet is hot enough to flow. The surface of the Earth, however, is chilled by the cold of space, and so the rocks of the Earth's surface are hard and brittle.
