The Deepest Dive in Antarctica Reveals a Sea Floor Teeming With Life

No one really knows what’s in the deep ocean in Antarctica. Now we have the technology to reach into the ocean depths, we accompanied scientist and deep-sea explorer Jon Copley and became the first to descend to 1000 meters underwater in Antarctica for Blue Planet II. The exotic creatures we found there will astonish you.

When most think of Antarctica, the first things that might come to mind are glaciers, frigid, below-zero temperatures, and a vast sea of whites and icy blues. While it’s beauty is undeniable, it’s an unpredictable and challenging place that some of us might never know.
