The Aliens Have Arrived

This is a wonderful streaming video that shows footage of a variety of new species of benthic sea life discovered by a new submersible with a camera — prepare to be amazed. Includes a nice soundtrack, too [4:52]

    This footage comes from a 2001 BBC documentary called ‘Blue Planet’ narrated by Sir Richard Attenborough. I highly reccomend it!

    So now we have to revoke all the patents on fluorescent ink due to the discovery of ‘prior art’?

    It is an amazing world.

    It seems that everywhere we look on earth life exists in forms most wonderous.

    I think of myself as a pretty brave person. I’ve done some white water rafting, rock climbing and I’ve always been a strong swimmer who loves the ocean. The thought of deep sea diving scares the beejeebers out of me. That’s one spooky world down there below the waves.

    Amazing footage! This is proof we don’t have to go to outer space to be amazed at the possible bio diversity in the universe!

    Amazing video. But surely they’re not benthic? The sea floor appears to be nowhere in sight. At least the ctenophorans are definitely planktonic.
