Awesome thread. SnF.

Truly amazing the way life has adapted to the conditions of the deep.
Going to these depths is as difficult and challenging as space travel in my opinion.
An alien world right here on Earth.

Also that's no Dumbo Octopus, that's Pikachu.


Pika...PIKA!!!

This is what cameron said, The nearly seven-mile voyage through near freezing temperatures, to what Cameron described as a "completely featureless, alien world" similar to that of the moon's surface, was captured on 3-D video and is expected to be aired on the National Geographic Channel .

I found a short clip of Cameron's view of the bottom of the trench......of course it's just a teaser. No plants or anything from what is shown here....like he said....desolate. But I'll bet he's saving the good stuff for his documentary!

Thanks for all the pics, but man some of those fish are just plane creeeeepy.
To me it's just odd that everyone wants to explore "space" yet we haven't even fully explored our own planet. I mean, wouldn't exploring our oceans be where you would start training for going out into space? (Does that make sense? It sounded better in my mind
)

I kept looking at this creature, trying to think of what it is it reminded me of.....





then it occured to me.....the plant from "Little Shop of Horrors"! I swear the mouth is just like it!

Watching this story on the news this AM I couldn't help but think that science would have been better served if an actual Marine Biologist was in the Sub.... the only thing served by this was Cameron's ego...

True....but it's better than nothing. No matter what you think of Cameron....it takes some big kahunas to go down there!

This is a perfect example of why there just has to be life in outer space! The extreme conditions at which life can thrive even on our own planet is amazing; from cellular life to complex organisms like the ones above.

No doubt bro. You also add in the fact of maybe over a million different galaxies with each one having well over a billion stars....wow...there is life out there.

That's what I meant about the odds.....there has to be other life out there.....somewhere.
