A Robot's Vision of Antarctica's Undersea Kingdom

This looks like a rocket entering a wormhole, but it's actually a robot camera designed to function on the ocean floor under the Anatarctic ice. The Submersible Capable of under Ice Navigation and Imaging (SCINI) can fit through a hole in the ice as small as 15 cm. Similar cameras could one day probe a buried ocean on Saturn's moon for unknown life forms. Click through to see the sea life under the polar ice.
