EXTREME DEEP: Mission into the AbyssJanuary 21, 2017, 9:00 am-May 6, 2017, 5:00 pm
EXTREME DEEP: Mission to the Abyss offers opportunities for hands-on exploration of life at
the bottom of the sea. Presented by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institution, EXTREME DEEP is an interactive exhibit that highlights the
adventure of deep-sea exploration and discovery.
EXTREME DEEP depicts the mysteries of the ocean’s greatest depths. Newly discovered life
forms, thermal vents, close-up views of deep-sea research submersibles, and shipwrecks,
including the Titanic, are among the attractions in this deep-sea adventure. Visitors will observe
firsthand the technology that has allowed men and women to travel to the ocean floor.
Visitors can fly a remotely operated vehicle over a model of the Titanic ‘s deck. They can also
test their skill at manipulating Alvin’s robotic arm by picking up lava rocks and clams from the
sea floor while peering through a recreation of Alvin’s four-inch viewport window. It’s not as
easy at it looks!
