    The sea has long been a source of storytelling and of real-time adventure tales. The great futuristic tale of our time is "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Jules Verne. It is a story of the submarine vessel Nautilus and her captain, Nemo. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill discusses this and other tales, as well as the evolution of submarine technology and the advent of modern day underwater tools and devices for global ocean research in unexpected places.
