::: Remarks :::
Apotili has traveled over 6022 km and dove over 850 m. Since the last transmition in 03/21/06, we have not received new information on its location. Based on the last data received, researchers believe that Apotili is most likely still alive, but its transmitter probably has a general failure. Something like barnacles or algae could be growing over the switches causing the transmitter to register as being underwater even when the unit is above the water, or the harness coming off earlier than anticipated. Hopefully we will be receiving new data on its location any time soon.
