Technology on the ocean floor

Hi guys,

  Scientists have used new technology to explore the ocean floor off the coast of Indonesia. There were many interesting pictures of the marine life taken by the scientists, such as this one.


Amazing, huh?

  Approximately 50 new plant and animal species were discovered during the three-week expedition. More than 100 hours and 100 000 photographs were taken with HD cameras and were sent to shore through high-speed internet.

  The expedition was carried out by a ship which belongs to the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (What a mouthful!), which is known as the Okeanos Explorer.
