When real-life marine biologist and mom goes to sea, she takes the octonauts with her

My friend Roxanne Beinart studies deep-sea hydrothermal vent ecosystems—work that sometimes takes her out to sea for weeks at a time. When on land, Roxanne and her young daughter love watching the octonauts together—a show about fluffy cartoon underwater explorers. So, to include her daughter in real life research, Roxanne brings the cartoon crew along on all her oceanic expeditions.

And luckily for us, Roxanne posts all of her adventures as they happen on her Istagram and Twitter feeds. Even better—Roxanne is currently on an expedition to explore the deep-sea Gulf of California with Nautilus Live, which is live broadcasting all of its dives for the world to watch. So you too can follow Roxanne and the octonaut crew on their real-life mission of discovery. As they say on the show: Octonauts, let’s do this!
