In October 2007, the Global Explorer ROV joined NOAA and National Geographic Magazine on an expedition to the unexplored waters south of the Philippine Islands. The Celebes Sea is more than 5,000 meters deep and the search was on for unknown species of marine life.
According to Larry Madin, Chief Scientist on the trip, "The ROV was the star of the show all along, and performed very well despite strong currents and unexpected underwater snares."
