4590331 story Rutgers Attempts Robot Atlantic Crossing 67 Posted by timothy on Thursday May 21, 2009 @04:18PM from the anything-to-get-away-from-camden dept. RUCOOL writes "Rutgers University students and staff launched a Slocum glider AUV in an attempt to be the first such vehicle to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Progress so far is good, but it will be a long 6- to 9-month journey. Status as well as other information can be tracked here. Media links can be found in the lower left section of page, among images, and storyline blogs." And Google Earth fans can track the vehicle's progress, too.
