This talk will provide a brief historical overview of how the design of the Cabled Array came to be and the science drivers for the OOI. This will be followed by a more detailed discussion of OOI science that is addressed at Axial Seamount and the installed infrastructure now in place that is designed to meet the science requirements. Context for the junction boxes and instruments now installed at Axial will be provided by video "fly-overs" of some of the key sites (ASHES, International District, and Central Caldera Sites).
