‘Super Falcon’ To Give New Underwater Data

May 15, 2009

California (ChattahBox) – A research sub, dubbed the ‘Super Falcon’, has been successfully tested for deep sea exploration, has been cleared for use after successful testing off of the San Fransisco Bay.

The 20-foot long submarine has been built specifically to carry two people along the ocean’s floor, allowing them to take a more accurate census of what is living under the sea. It is hoped to be a more convenient and agile sub then most of it’s kind.

“We already have multi-beam instruments to probe the seabed and give us very detailed information about its rocky contours,” Maria Brown, a researcher on the expedition, explained, “but now we can learn much more about how animals move through the water and where they move.”

The Super Falcon was built by Graham Hawkes, and is set to be used later this month.
