Take a peek at Sentry, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's state-of-the-art Autonomous Underwater Vehicle. Supported by the National Science Foundation, it's capable of exploring the ocean and seafloor to depths of 19,000 feet while untethered
The most important National Science Foundation-funded research delivered with text-on-screen, for when it needs "spelling out"
ROV Jason is Woods Hole's state of the art Remotely Operated Vehicle. Supported by the National Science Foundation and equipped with sonars, video and still imaging systems and sampling capabilities, Jason can investigate the deep ocean and seafloor.
Researchers aboard the National Science Foundation-funded research vessel (R/V) Endeavor are studying plankton and other materials in the waters off the coast of South America to tackle a pressing question in oceanography
This is the HOV Alvin... the Navy's Human Occupied Vehicle, supported by the National Science Foundation
Barnacles are sticky little critters that hitch rides on the backs of humpback and gray whales. They hold a wealth of information that is helping scientists better understand how whales might respond to the current changes in Earth's climate
National Science Foundation-funded cognitive neuroscientists at George Washington University have found that a person's knowledge about the size of everyday objects impacts how our brains process and interact with the visual environment
National Science Foundation-funded Cornell researchers have found a simpler, inexpensive alternative to the expensive LiDAR sensors currently used in self-driving cars to detect objects
New, fast MRI and computed tomography scanning techniques allow researchers to study live wrist bones in motion for the first time
National Science Foundation-funded mechanical engineers at Brigham Young University have brought science fiction to life with a new technology, called developable mechanisms, that allows them to build complex mechanisms into the exterior of a structure without sacrificing space
National Science Foundation-funded Louisiana State University scientists created a detailed history of the oldest and largest Adelie penguin colony in the Northern Antarctic Peninsula
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) -- a planet-scale array of eight ground-based radio telescopes forged through international collaboration -- was designed to capture images of a black hole. On April 10, in coordinated press conferences across the globe, EHT researchers revealed that they have succeeded, unveiling the first direct visual evidence of a supermassive black hole and its shadow
