Sniper spotted this deep sea ocean explorer, connected to 88km of internet cabling, and you can watch it's live stream here. Each spur runs to a node, which is best thought of as a giant underwater networking switch, where lower voltage power and data connectivity is doled out to NEPTUNE's secondary infrastructure of sensors and instrument platforms.

The Obama Administration has changed its mind over a plan to name pharmaceutical executive Phil Johnson as head of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
