Yes, this is a good point, Ann and Beth. I am guessing the protective cage that's been built won't be enough in big storm surges, so it's surely something that will be addressed if these are to go into full deployment. At this point the structure likely wouldn't withstand something like Hurricane Sandy.
This makes a lot of sense, but I also have the same question as Beth after the hurricane: what happens to these and other types of underwater operations? What kind of protection or stabilization is engineered into their structures?
It's a real frontier for innovation, certainly, but also a dangerous frontier, especially as witnessed by yesterday's Hurricane Sandy. It got me thinking--what happens to these kind of charging stations in severe weather like yesterday?
Thanks for the story. It's easy to forget that the ocean is still a real frontier for technological innovation. More people have walked on the moon than have been down to the Marianas Trench - the deepest part of the ocean.
