Intercontinental Submarine Fiber Optic Cable

UPDATE: A cool resource (interactive map) for learning about the existing infrastructure: http://www.cablemap.info/

I was reading an article online that mentioned that the United States is connected to 63 countries by fiber optic cable. It made me curious about intercontinental fiber optic cable and how that cable gets ran over such distances. I searched Google and found this really interesting video. Enjoy!
