Featuring C-DEBI Researcher Julie Huber. In the darkness of a sanctum known as the inner space center, a team of volcanologists, marine biologists, and other scientists whispered into microphones as they looked over their glowing monitors at a large projection screen, where a live feed showed a research vessel bobbing in heavy seas off Hawaii. Atop the ship was one of the world’s most advanced remotely operated vehicles, which the scientists were hoping to send some 4,000 feet below in search of signs of life along a massive underwater volcano, a dark, desolate place no human has ever explored.
