This huge mf is going down through the moon pool. It is a ROV or remotely operated vehicle. Ægir will go down approximately 2000m and explore the sea floor, take pictures and samples. We have a specialist crew with us to operate the beast.

Note: a moon pool is a hole in the ship to let divers and robots directly into the water. This way we do not have to cut through the ice first

"In Norse mythology, Ægir is a sea jötunn associated with the ocean. He is also known for being a friend of the gods and hosting elaborate parties for them." - Source: Wikipedia
