The Census of Marine Life is bringing to light extraordinary microscopic creatures never before seen by human eyes, dredged from their world of permanent darkness, freezing temperatures and crushing pressure

Im sorry but you will have to go to the main article to access the video-for now. About 10 minutes long but just amazing and beautiful. Makes one wonder more about Life and what it is all about. Enjoy.
I love watching the robotic arms/devices etc. Must be hard to do

Any ATSers have any experience doing this stuff?

Awesome video

I hope to one day get some experience with these types of tools.
Im excited and hope to one day know the feeling of looking at something new and making new discoveries in any field i can in the biotic world.
So few new frontiers I am capable of exploring, Ive always wanted to conquer the unknown.

As we experiencing on our little planet, everywhere there is the possibility to grab and hold, the Life blooms and grows!

Like in the darken and deep oceans, near volcanos to highest temperatures, under some kilometers of Ice and in the more barren and hostile deserts.

In billions of years an unicellur life form that it has fought in an absolutely extreme atmosphere and it has generated mankind...

I wander.... what in our solar system?

Did I hear her right? 99% of the species living in the deep ocean are undiscovered. I can only imagine all of the different lifeforms that are down there just waiting to be discovered. The bio-luminescence was my favorite part, organisms that produce their own light? Imagine having a few of those in a fish tank. If you want to have an idea of what alien life forms might look like, I think these organisms are a good starting block. They just look so unlike anything else, it's crazy.

this is why i believe "aliens" are just subterranean species. the large eyes are to accommodate the lack of sunlight

Hey wait a minute I thought that up at the arctic was an entrance to the inner earth. You know, the one that we believe is there with it's own little sun and all that???

Man oh man every time I think I understand something someone comes along and messes everything up. Ouch. My head hurts...

Doesn't anyone do a search anymore on ATS?

You mean like this, dated before yours?
Sea Creature Census

Meant in good spirits of course

Sometimes the search is not as effective as we'd like...

Such extraordinary conditions to thrive in, amazing. No wonder the creatures are so exotic looking.
I can see where Cameron got some of his inspiration for The AbyssMovie
Some of those things look like what a ufo would look like, crazy!
It is aways refreshing to learn that there is still much to learn and discover here on our precious blue gem.
Thanks for the thread.

How many people can claim they have discovered 50 new species? It boggles the mind. Over 500 already discovered, 100 more about to be released. Wow.

And, it takes that equipment 4 hours just to get to the bottom!

We know precious little about our planet, like the vid said, we probably know more about Mars. Glad to see some money being spent on exploration in our own world, we take for granted that vast openness of the sea, I think.

Thanks for the article, as I do not recall seeing the other threads!

Yes, the Census of Marine Life has been going on for sometime. No surprise other mention of it has been referenced but not this video.

Enjoy the vid. Relax. Go to the researchers website. Are you claiming that out of all that info that someone has specific rights to the whole topic area?

I bet you can find 10 more threads on the front page alone.

You know what else this made me think of? Medicines that can be derived from this ecosystem and it's inhabitants. I thought that I had heard somewhere this was happening and upon doing some research I found it to be true. here's a couple of links and the 3rd one has a vid about medicine from the deep sea.

That is a wonderful (and brilliant) idea. Hadn't thought of that one.

I wonder how much medicine reseach is conducted with Sealife?
