A robot from the Monterey Bay Aquarium's research center has begun operating in the Gulf of Mexico to assist in the oil spill. The submarine robot is named the Dorado. It's job is to help analyze the extent of the spill by monitoring the undersea currents and it's ability to carry the dense oil. It is also collecting samples of marine life to help scientist determine the extent of damage the spill has on the marine life. The Dorado has artificial intelligence software aboard to help decide where to seek and what to sample. It can dive to 5,000 feet. Pretty cool stuff from Monterey.
