Live Dive 2006

I recently posted about vacation tele-tours where tourists could participate in underwater dives by watching through the eyes of a remote operated vehicle, ROV.

Well, here is an opportunity to see one for yourself.

On Saturday July 15, The National Undersea Research Center at University of Connecticut and US NOAA will be showing a live webcast of the exploration of a shipwreck off the coast of Massachusetts.

The site is where the four-masted schooner Frank A. Palmer and the five-masted schooner Louise B. Crary collided and sank in 1902.

The webcasts will be in two 30 min segments while live DVD quality images will be shown to visitors at the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center.

Viewers will be able to explore the wrecks at the same time as archeologists.
