Anthem to the unseen
Think you've been there, done it and seen it all? Think again as a a plethora of fascinating creatures have been discovered in the deep ocean off the coast of Puerto Rico. Oceans cover two thirds of our planet’s surface, and yet we’ve only
explored five percent of them.
It’s mind boggling to imagine that
scientists might discover life on another world before we fully come to appreciate what lives beneath the waters of this one
first time ever, a collection of strange, beautiful, and totally-alien
looking creatures that live some 10,000 feet below the ocean’s surface
are saying hello to humanity. The video footage shown below was caught
by a remotely operated vehicle on a unique, crowd-sourced exploration
supported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Researchers were able to watch the footage in real time and offer their
expertise through an Internet chatroom.
