Japanese Research Team Films Fish At Deepest-Ever Depth In Mariana Trench

Submitted by: skypirate 1 month ago in Science Weird


Scientists find and film a snailfish at 8,178 meters below sea level.

An excerpt from The Japanese Times: A government-affiliated institution said Thursday it filmed a snailfish in the Mariana Trench at a depth of 8,178 meters — the deepest point ever for capturing a fish on video.

The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (Jamstec), said the filming was jointly carried out with NHK on May 18. The video was taken with 4K ultrahigh-resolution cameras mounted on an unmanned hadal lander operated by Kairei, the agency’s deep-sea research vessel.

5cats I guess all the hentai you watched paid out on this video. I can't understand anything besides "Mariana", "snail" and "fish".

We ought to push for more sea exploration.  It's such an amazing thing, so much more convenient to explore than space.  There's so much to be gained learning to navigate and explore the the ocean, and much that would apply to living on celestial bodies if we ever could.  There are many lessons and secrets we can uncover by learning to overcome the ocean and live within it (outside of military purposes, of course).

monkwarrior Yes. More exploration, more learning, more science, more knowledge.  Under the sea, on land, under the land, in the sky, and above the sky.  Everywhere and anywhere we need to push the boundaries to expand human knowledge.  Gotta collect it all !
