Scientists Are Exploring One Of The Deepest, Most Mysterious Parts Of The Ocean In A Submarine – Video
Watch video now!
Watch scientists explore one of the worlds deepest and most mysterious areas in real-time from your computer at home and surprise you of its beautiful place.
The live-streamscomes from the the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), whose Okeanos Explorer ship is currently probing the Mariana Trench with the help of satellites. This underwater area of the western Pacific Ocean lies east of the Philippines at a depth of over 11 kilometers (7 miles). Thats deeper than the height of MountEverest.
Using their three high-definition live-streams, you can be among the first people in the world to see the area, along with the remnants of its geological history and its unknown biological life. Among their travels, theyve already found a wealth of surprises, including undiscovered corals, parasites, jellyfish, crustaceans, fish, and fairly depressingly even a can of beer.
The broadcasts will run until July 10 onNOAA’s YouTubechannel, although they will only broadcast when the Okeanos Explorer is working on its daily operations. So to catch the show, youll have to tune in during their days work, which usually runs from 08:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. local time in Fiji (4:30 p.m. to12:30 a.m. EDT / 9:30 p.m. to5:30 a.m. BST).
Check out the live-streams from the vehicle’s three cameras below.
