Underwater Gliders

Some things are just too cool for words. Even though I suspect these things evolved from military drones and are probably co-deployed as military assets, they are still pretty damn interesting.

I'm an engineer, not a scientist. I fix things. I spot flaws. I poke around in basements and back rooms, either literally or figuratively. But reading stuff like this makes me wish I had gone into a more esoteric line of work.
