New Discoveries Deep in the Mariana Trench
Scientists exploring the Marianas Trench returned to Hawaii with a few surprising discoveries. An international team onboard the Falkor research vessel used deep sea vehicles to dive more than 34,000 feet. They studied how life adapts to ocean depths and the history of volcanic activity.
The expedition was highlighted by the discovery of a new Snail fish, a ghostlike fish with large “wings” and a long eel-like tail that glided in front of their cameras.
