Latest from World Ocean Radio: Fantastic Voyages

The sea has been a source of storytelling and real-time adventure tales since the beginning of narrative and almost every culture has its archetypal story. The great futuristic tale is 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, a tale of the submarine vessel Nautilus and her captain, Nemo, a scientist in pursuit of knowledge. 

In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill discusses modern day underwater devices for global ocean research, fascinating tools for underwater exploration in unexpected places.
