Innovation in Exploration G+ Hangout

To mark Earth Day 2013, National Geographic hosted a live Google+ Hangout bringing together modern day scientists and explorers who rely on the latest technologies in their work.

Marine Biologist, shark specialist and cinematographer Richard Fitzpatrick represented the Catlin Seaview Survey project and spoke from underwater during the Hangout. Richard was joined by National Geographic Explorer and Severe-Storms Researcher Tim Samaras and NASA's Operation IceBridge Project Manager Christy Hansen.
