$1 million US robot lost below ocean off Chile coast

A pioneering deep-sea robot made by US researchers was lost off the coast of Chile.

Researchers lost contact with the $1.1 million robot after it reached the Pacific Ocean floor, nearly two miles down.

Scientists believe a glass sphere that helped keep the robot buoyant may have imploded under the water pressure, destroying onboard communications.
