Over my head
Attempting to collect a crinoid
Going as planned
Not going as planned
Love me some HD photos of deep sea shit.
Ok, I want one
Love how nerdy they are
The banter is the best thing about them
thanks for sharing. awesome stuff. are they going in 2016?
Yup. Expedition will be revealed soon.
Just spent the entire first half of the football game watching all the videos ha
New expedition starts in early May through October 2016
Whoa, that's neato
Got weathered out today. Planning for a dive tomorrow.
Just about to get their ROV into the water. Dive should last until 11:00pm CST.
Mature cutthroat eel
Okeanos is currently live from Marianas Trench
The lack of interest in this thread is depressing
It's unfortunate, but I can enjoy what others are missing out on.
Back in 2015, Okeanos and its ROV stumbled upon a sladenia shaefersi - a species of the angler fish family as we know it.
They just went apeshit when a Humpback passed by.
Just now or in one of the Nautilus Youtube videos?
Pretty certain the bottom of the ocean is what Hell would be like. That shit creeps me the fuck out, although it is fascinating.
I thought it was live but someone said something about it being 2015, so I guess it was old. The whale just kinda swam around the sub and checked it out for a few minutes. Pretty fucking cool.
I've watched a lot of awesome things during Nautilus' dives, but seeing that live tops them all.
We've got a black smoker live right now!
Rewind the live stream to 35:00 when you get a chance
That's a lot of shrimp
That stack is over 20 stories tall
Just starting another dive
this dive has been bananas... second shark sighting just now
I've got a lot of screen grabs coming soon.
Okeanos' crew is currently on a dive at Zealandia Bank
A long stretch of basket stars and black coral
There's hundreds of them
The crew and scientists ashore are excited as they continue to waltz through an endless field of basket stars
These white basket stars are possibly a new species discovered
Grabbed one for further identification
Basket stars extend their arms into the current and grab microorganisms with their grappling hooks and slowly bring the organisms to their mouth located in their central disc
Second shark sighting on the night
Left fish is a species of etelis carbunculus
In the same ledge is a red snapper and a fish that forgot how to swim
The fish to the right is displaying a common body orientation seen under ledges like that
They will orientate themselves to the top of the shelf to better spot food
A micro-crab blending into its surrounding yellow corral
The drama of that basket collection
lol'd kinda hard @ dude reaching for the rock repeatedly.
yes I realize it's not a dude.
ROV Deep Discoverer is secure on deck following today’s dive at Zealandia, where we investigated deep-sea coral and bottomfish communities. A highlight of today’s dive included the discovery of an area of a “field” with hundreds of basket stars and feather stars! Tonight we’ll conduct overnight mapping operations while transiting to the next dive site. Tomorrow’s dive will be conducted on the Kunanaf Hulo’ Seamount to investigate whether it may be a mud volcano. Tune in and explore with us!
Starting in a bit
A deepsea lizardfish (bathysauridae) is one of the deepest living apex predators, waiting on the bottom with its fore-body raised to attract prey.
It lunges forward at its prey with a mouth full of teeth in a snapping motion. These fish will take on anything regardless of its size and shape.
We get to revisit our acorn worm that was spotted by the Nautilus last year. Fortunately, we are also able to watch as it shits out filtered sand and ocean floor microorganisms.
