The water pressure at a depth of around 100 metres is too great for humans to dive to with flippers and SCUBA tanks. Instead, we send down submersible vehicles such as the KIEL 6000. Equipped with headlamps, manipulator arms, cameras, and measuring devices, they explore the deep sea. The robots transfer the pictures they take directly to the research vessel.
