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."
