Laying optical cabling in the ocean
A photo of workers laying the hundreds of miles of fiber optic cabling used in a coastal observation network run by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, Mass. The system is set up so that equipment has long-term power supplies and constant Internet connections, which allows scientists to adjust experiments remotely. The data is available to the public as well.
