Underwater Exploration - August 10th, 6pm
Free and Open to the public.
In 2007, a team of highly skilled cave divers discovered a large pit in the Hoyo Negro underwater cave system in the Yucatan Peninsula. In the pit, they found the skeletons of several Late Pleistocene Era animals as well as the oldest set of human remains ever found in North America. The skeleton was a young girl they named Princess Naia. Through video and lecture, diver and team member, Alberto Nava will showcase the video recording efforts at the site. Over the past two years he created and will demonstrate an 8 billion point-cloud model of the site using proprietary CISA3/UCSD software and photogrammetry techniques.
