DORA now in Second Life!

Well, I'm pretty sure we had one of if not the first AUV ever in Second Life when in 2007 we put DOERRI there.  Now we have the first Gavia in SL this on the UD island with the RV Sharp in the background.  We have a bunch of educational outreach plans in mind for the AUV in SL.  Eventually we would like people to be able to configure the vehicle and even send it on missions from the beach or from the Sharp.  Imagine a student from a school hundreds of miles from the coast coming up to a terminal in SL and being able to launch and control the AUV and have it move a real AUV out in the field...telepresence in a Virtual World!
