Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an une...
In subsea applications, pipes need to maintain their reliability and high quality performance; the best way to protect these pipes is to use Monel, Inconel, or any similar nickel alloy. Nickel alloys, in the oil and gas industry, have become extremely popular because of their corrosion resistance. At Continental Steel & Tube, we supply a wide variety of nickel alloys for marine applications and can provide you solutions for your subsea design. For more information on subsea applications of nickel alloys, check out our page here: http://metalspecialist.continentalsteel.com/blog/subsea-applications-of-nickel-alloys
From gold coins to sunken treasure to ancient tombs, these are the 13 biggest treasures ever discovered. Back in 2014, a middle aged couple in Northern California accidentally stumbled across 1400 gold coins while walking their dog. The old coins were likely stolen from a coin minting factory back in the Gold Rush era of California and hidden underground for a couple hundred years. The individual coins were auctioned off and ended up raising 11 million dollars. The couple has chosen to stay anonymous and refused to disclose where they found the gold to prevent a false gold rush in their area. Most of their 11 million dollar profit was donated to charity. The British are constantly sweeping their own land with metal detectors, in hopes of finding ancient treasures and trinkets lost to his...

Episode 1 of Differential Diagnostics introduces the top cause of pipeline failures, mechanical damage, and explains why it’s such a huge problem in the industry. When mechanical damage strikes, it puts pipeline owners and operators in a race against the clock to figure out exactly where it occurred and repair it before pipeline failure occurs. But finding the damage only is part of the challenge. To download the video’s companion resource, Mechanical Damage Severity Ranking, go to http://ow.ly/AYTj300zxyn _______ Script: Of the many threats that can affect hazardous liquid and natural gas pipelines, mechanical damage is one of the most dangerous – and most common. Mechanical damage can lead to cracking… leaks… and, worst of all, ruptures. In some cases, more than one type of da...

Prelude FLNG is the world's first floating liquefied natural gas platform as well as the largest offshore facility ever constructed. The Prelude is being built by Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea for Royal Dutch Shell. It is 488 metres (1,601 ft) long, 74 metres (243 ft) wide, and made with more than 260,000 tonnes of steel. In operation, it would weigh more than 600,000 tonnes; more than five times the weight of the largest aircraft carrier. This video is targeted to blind users.

Over-priced but under-sold
You'll soon be worth your weigh in precious metal
Roll the crimson carpet out
The jack of clubs has come and will not leave
Fate loved me but now does not
I heard it from a rare clairvoyant petal
First you thrash me then you run
You broke the heart I fastened to my sleeve
Oh you're killing me now
You're over the moon and I'm under the ground
Oh it's killing you too
That they fought over me
But poured scorn over you
Oh it's payment in kind
That you're half what I love and half what I despise
Oh you're killing me now, you're killing me
Out of time but into greed
Your pots will slowly turn to copper kettles
Sneak a breath then spit it out
Enjoy the pound of freshly scented truce
One obsession at a time;
Your grip is getting loose around the nettles
Time to flee, and fly you will
A felon with a melancholy muse
