Dr. Delgado has led and participated in previous live missions, including robotic dives with NOAA’s ship Okeanos Explorer to the wreck of a Japanese mini-submarine sunk off Pearl Harbor on December 7 1941; and with Dr. Ballard, the exploration of historic wrecks off San Francisco, including the atomic-bombed aircraft carrier USS Independence, and the live robotic underwater excavation of an early 1800s shipwreck in the Gulf of Mexico.
