We talked with scientists and we saw robots who work in the Atlantic, crossing it autonomously, collecting and transmitting data.We strolled in the new and the old part of Las Palmas, we visited Maspalomas, a museum of technology and also Puerto de Mogan. A very big surprise awaited us there: we boarded a tourist submarine. For 45 minutes we travelled beneath th
