Scientists accidentally film sperm whale, get adorably excited

A group of scientists onboard the Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus were using a remote operate vehicle to film some underwater footage when a sperm whale just happened to swim by their camera.

Not only is the footage of the whale truly stunning, the scientists' excited reactions are super adorable, particularly the guy who jokes, “We come in peace!” Seems like the Nautilus is a pretty fun place to work.
