Thursday, July 5, 2007: First Tank Test at MBARI
Today we visited the "other" marine lab in Moss Landing, CA: MBARI, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. They kindly gave us use of their giant 11 meter deep test tank, which gave us room to fly SCINI for the first time! After a series of motor problems last week everything went very smoothly, with none of our equipment bottles leaking (let alone flooding and destroying our electronics!).
(continued, with video!)
Our higher resolution Elphel camera is down right now, so this video was captured with a simple lower quality camera we slapped on in an hour or two.
