We tag along with the engineers at Sofar Ocean Technologies to watch a test of their Spotter Buoy--an ocean sensor that collects data about the weather anywhere it's deployed. The idea is to put enough of these sensors around the world to gather marine data on an unprecedented scale. Today's test: deploying these from an airplane!
