Due to the large amount of data that needs to sent to Earth, the submarine needs a large dorsal fin that includes a planar phased-array antenna. While operating, the submarine would surface for 16 hours per day for Earth communications during which it would study its surroundings using a mast camera.
This article seems to agree there's something odd about the investigation: http://arstechnica.com/tech-po...
That said, maybe next iteration could feature a bright white LED that flashes to let everyone know you are recording. And Google can then make a big push to inform people that No-Light=No-Recording. Would that reduce the creepiness? I'd hate to lose the camera, it enables a ton of awesome use cases. I suppose then we'd just hear ghost stories about people crippling the LED so they could once again be creepy.
I'm not drawing too many conclusions, but there's clearly a peak for both genders in 1985. Yes, it seems a sharper decline for women (dropping from 3% to 1% over 10 years, vs. men who fell from about 5.5% to 3.2% in the same time). More interesting than the decline in the 80s to me, which seemed fairly uniform between genders, was the short peak of women returning to the major in the early 2000s, where men surpassed the high point from '85 (5.5%) to go up to 7.5%, while women never recovered to their high point from '85 (3%) and maxed out around 2%.
TLDR; maybe someone should make a study trying to figure out what happened during the revival in interest in CS in the early 2000s and stop blaming the 80's.
