The information
Alvin, a Massachusetts based submersible, was back to the sea with new features. Alvin was the first submersible to explore the Titanic, among other important missions.

The design
The illustration in the center shows the new additions, around it we can see some details, like the thickness of the new core (actual size), the missions of the last 25 years, how deep it can reach of the evolution since its creation.
NOTE: I used the PDF file for the screen shot, some of the transparencies and gradients (lights, for instance) don't work properly here, but they did on the print version.
