Deploying the UNC Landers

Detailed Description

In this time-lapse, one of the University of North Carolina landers is deployed over the side of the R/V Falkor into the water. From there, it will sink to the seafloor. Once it has reached the bottom, ROV SuBastian will be deployed to reposition the lander to the desired location.
