    Sometimes the world feels boring. All the remote islands are visited, the arctic conquered, the dense jungles discovered. Except, there is still a place to explore: A wet deadly desert where mysterious creatures live in total darkness: The deep sea. Let us dive down.

    While some kids were dreaming about exploring the unreached wanders of space, during my childhood, I was amazed by the fact that the depths of the ocean were not given as much interest. I always considered the ocean to be a space within Earth-vast, unexplored, so close-yet so far. The video I watched took me back to my childhood fantasies while providing some curious details about biology, in particular, the topic of evolution. It was a bewildering experience to contemplate how life on Earth was able to adjust to the harshest of conditions, such as those present at the bottom of the ocean. Evolution resulted in the creation of truly breathtaking creatures ready to survive in an unnormal environment that, at first glance, shouldn't be habitable at all. Interestingly enough, this chain of thoughts took me back to space and left me wondering-if life can exist in the depths of the ocean, why can't it exist in the vastness of space?

    I love the oceans so much. I’ve always been a fan of highly extreme conditions as they foster such interesting life, things we could hardly imagine. People spend so much of their time speculating about alien life when little do they realize that it’s right on our planet, thousands of meters down.

  • Mike Sargsyan

    Very interesting video.
    What especially struck my attention was the fact that plastic bags were found at the bottom of the deepest place on Earth. I think it is especially important to start concentrating on finding ways to clean all that plastic. Nonetheless, such issue currently appears to be an insurmountable challenge, barring the development of a microbe or nanotechnology that can swarm the ocean and clean it. The video made me feel anxious about the future of the ocean and all marine animals inhabitating the water depths of the planet.

  • Peter Baumgart
    Peter Baumgart 11 meses atrás +8

    Very informative and well done. But the "cars on top of you" (or eventually the elephants) is misleading, as the pressure is isostatic, i.e. not just "on top of you," but coming at you from all possible directions. And since your body is largely incompressible (like the water around you there), you might be able to swim. If you don't try to breathe, I guess. There is a world of complications with that of course. (Even if you breathe compressed gas, as they do up to 300 m deep, it will still lead to all kinds of complications. A kilobar is hard to deal with when you have lungs.)

    Cool video. As you mentioned plastic bags on the bottom of the deepest deep. I wonder if you could maybe talk about how we may go about cleaning all that plastic out again. Something that at least for me seems as an impossible task, unless we manage to create a micro organism or nano tech that can swarm the ocean and delitter it.

      @Jurassics that could probably work, there's a possibility it coule stop working underwater but what's one robot matter, very easy to clean up, it also doesn't need functions to access weapons or attack anything so i don't see anyway it murders humanity lol

      @Waltuh • 2.3b views • 3 seconds ago..... I agree. Not a good solution. And it would probably just end up inside all the living things in the ocean. How about slightly larger robots of some kind. Filtering out plastic and resurfacing for emptying. Underwater Wall-E

    I remember in second grade, me and my class studied the ocean and each of us studied a specific sea creature in it. The way we did the ocean is the start of the classroom (near the door) was the shallowest zone, and the further from the door you went, the deeper into the ocean you got- And at the end in a closet like indent in the room was the deepest zone, and we had painted jellyfish and stuff in glow in the dark paint then used a black light to make them glow

    nice video! i wonder if any scientist has taken one of those 30cm shrimp from the depths of the ocean and brought them up to the top of the ocean? those shrimp would probaby be like a superman shrimp LOL swimming 50mph and be kicking sharks asses all over the top!

    As a human biologist, I cannot emphasise enough how important the discovery of new organisms in the sea is. To give you an example, studies on the jellyfish Aequorea victoria has enabled us to isolate the green fluorescent protein (GFP), which, as the name suggests, exhibits bright green fluorescence. Today, we wildly fuse GFP with other proteins in order to make them visible and observe processes in cells. GFP is so wildly used today that its discovery has been awarded with the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry (would love to make a video about the applications of this bright protein). Who knows what else we could find in the deep sea? Feel free to ask anything about that topic (or stem cells, since I am conducting research in this field)!

    • Sciencerely
      Sciencerely 3 anos atrás

      @J Sal Sounds like a fun experiment to me! This process is called transformation (the introduction of plasmids into bacteria). There are different ways to introduce plasmids into bacteria, but I guess that you used chemically-competent E. coli and a heat-shock method (this involves ice). This is often done in laboratories all over the world!

    • Sciencerely
      Sciencerely 3 anos atrás

      @Paddy Lawn Theoretically, sure. We just need to find a way to integrate the gene encoding for GFP into the genome of the right cells and express it. Although this sounds easy in theory, however, it is very difficult (we would consider it as gene therapy if you want to read more)

    One thing you forgot to mention that's incredibly interesting is brine pools. Brine pools are literal lakes below the sea. They contain water with an extremly high salinity and actual have a distinct surface towards the ocean. Brine pools are so incredibly saline that most fish that enter them die almost immedietly. Except hagfish. Hagfish don't give a flying fuck about the salinity of the brine pool and use them as personal hiding spots. But the most interesting thing about brine pools is that each and every one of them has a unique composition and a unique fauna of microorganisms that exist only at that particular brine pool.

      not a movie, but there's a game called "Narcosis" (if i can remember) that's set in the deep sea. Basically the plot is your submarine crashed, everyone is dead or missing, and you have to get back to the surface alone. But i think it was more of a psychological horror. I loved that game for the plot, but the deep sea creatures were kind of repetitive.
