River deep, mountain high

Once more unto the breach. The scientists are heading back into the Cayman trough throughout this month for a further look in the depths at some previously unmapped areas using the Nereus ROV

“By exploring this extreme and previously uninvestigated section of the Earth’s deep seafloor, this research seeks to extend our understanding of the limits (in terms of extreme environments) to which life can exist on Earth, to understand how geologic processes might generate the prebiotic materials believed to have been an essential precursor to life on Earth, and to help prepare for future efforts to explore for life on other planets"

Who know what they'll find on this expedition. My hopes is some underwater foreign object like in the Abyss, but somehow I doubt it.............
