A Tour of Argus
The Remotedly Operated Vehicle (ROV) Argus is used in tandem with ROV Hercules on the Exploration Vessel Nautilus to explore the ocean bottom. Its journey of ocean cxploration started in 2000. Here are some parts of Argus that make it one amazing ROV!
Nautilus was diving at the Eratosthenes Seamount in search of signs indicating active hydrothermal vents, where warm chemical-rich water is seeping out of the seafloor, and the exotic animals that live on them. While searching for evidence of geological and biological activity, we came across both modern and ancient garbage.
