On Tuesday, April 17, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) will host an all-ages “Family Science Outing” to learn about Alvin, the institute’s manned deep submergence vehicle. The submersible has made over 4,400 dives in its nearly 50-year history.
According to an article in the Falmouth Patch, “Inside the Alvin Submersible,” will take place from 1-3 p.m. at the WHOI Exhibit Center on School Street in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
The event is timed to coincide with April 15, which is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Alvin was involved in the exploration of the wreckage of RMS Titanic in 1986.
