New species found in the most unexpected place
The capacity of sea exploration, at least in human terms, is certainly limited; the lower we go, the more dangerous it becomes. Of course, things change dramatically when equipment is involved, and when British scientists recently took a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) for a spin deep in the waters near Antarctica, the discoveries were remarkable.
Found beneath the Southern Ocean, where hydrothermal vents reach scalding temperatures close to 400 C, were incredible new species and breath-taking photos to boot. From the team, led by researchers at England's Oxford University, here are some of the most amazing images snapped in what's being called Antarctica's "Lost World."

More National Geographic photographer Aaron Huey travels back to Svanetia, a remote region of Georgia, to revisit the people and the place that inspired his future career. Re-reading journals full of recipes, songs, and vocabulary he learned on his first visit, Huey talks about the family that took him in when he first arrived. “The whole family still sings in the kitchen. There are just some of those things that never change, and I found a lot of those again.” Huey discovers many similar scenes on his return, such as traditional Svan singers and dancers, in a place few have witnessed.
