Sigma Xi SmartBrief | Apr 16, 2015

A huge sperm whale had a close encounter with a remotely controlled underwater vehicle in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, all caught on video by researchers watching from above aboard the E/V Nautilus. The crew watched in excitement as the massive creature circled the remote vehicle about 2,000 feet, or about 610 meters, underwater after it had just surfaced near the ship.
