As you know, the oceans are a whole world unto themselves. Take a look at any underwater photos or videos and you’ll likely see a whole alien-like world filled with odd and surprising creatures.
But in this video, scientists and explorers are venturing down into the deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean. And they’re about to see things they’ve never seen before.
Known as the Puerto Rico Trench, the deepest spot in the Atlantic occurs where two tectonic plates meet. It has a maximum depth of 28,373 feet.
Now scientists have embarked on a 52-day expedition to map out and explore that unknown depth in the Atlantic better than they ever have before.
With remote underwater vehicles, they were able to explore depths of up to 20,000 feet. They even streamed much of the footage online while they explored.
The expedition was a huge success. They witnessed many rarely seen underwater creatures and even spotted some that have never before been seen.
Take a look at the footage below and be amazed at the incredible creatures living deep in the Atlantic Ocean.
