Films taken from 2000m sea floor by China's manned submersible
An incredible video, capturing in high resolution mysterious creatures living more than 2,000 meters beneath the surface of the sea, has been released to the public.
The rare two-minute clip was shot by a Chinese manned submersible, called the “Deep Sea Warrior,” on a recent scientific research voyage.
Blind shrimp, exotic crabs, and bizarre-looking fish were caught on camera — denizens of an almost alien world in the deep.
Chinese scientists working on the project said they had observed numerous blind shrimp around hydrothermal vents, where jets of heated watery fluid spew out from the seafloor into the ocean.
Deep Sea Warrior is China’s second manned deep-sea submersible, after Jiao Long. The vehicle reached 4,500 meters under the ocean during a manned expedition in 2017.
