    The Reason For My Faith ^ | 1/18/20 | Chuck Ness
    The original clay model used as the mold for the famous, "Il Cristo degli Abissi" statue, can be seen at the Ravenna "National Museum of the Underwater Activities" in Italy. The original statue is in the Mediterranean sea off San Fruttuoso, between Camogli and Portofino on the Italian Riviera. The statue was placed in the water on 22 August 1954 at approximately 17 meters depth, and stands 2.5 meters (8.5 feet) tall. Professor Guido Galletti cast the original from the inspiration of the first Italian to use SCUBA gear, swimmer/diver Duilo Merchant. Galletti wanted a symbol to inspire all who...

    Australian researchers recently found that over 90 species of endangered fish are caught legally by industrial fisheries globally. In the wake of the study, scientists have again suggested eating more jellyfish as a sustainable option. Why? Marine biologist Lisa-ann Gershwin says there are a few reasons.

    The Japanese government is planning on releasing millions of gallons of contaminated water into the ocean starting in 2022, according to international news reports. “170 tons of new radioactive wastewater is generated each day [at Fukushima] and is stored in 1,000 specially designed tanks,” Forbes reports. The government would begin to release the contaminated water into the ocean when the tanks being used to store it reach capacity. The final decision about whether or not to implement the plan is expected to be announced by November. The water is being treated to “reduce radioactivity,

    When photographer Kristian Laine went out to the Great Barrier Reef near Lady Elliot Island to photograph some turtles, manta rays, and sharks, he wasn't expecting to stumble across the only known pink manta ray in the world. "I had never even heard of a pink manta and when I first saw it, I thought my camera was playing up," he told ScienceAlert. "Only later that night I saw a photo of a pink manta on the restaurant's notice board and thought it was a joke until I rushed to check the belly patterns in my camera." The pink reef...

    An oceanic whitetip shark was found covered in suction-like scars on its side These scars had to have been made by the tentacles of a giant squid species Researchers say its the first evidence of a fight between a shark and giant squid Until now fights between massive cephalopods and giant sharks were only speculative, due to the fact squids live at over 3,000ft under the ocean surface. He said while he couldn't say exactly which species, it had to be large. White dots found on the body of the shark were made by the narrow parts of the tentacle...

    The Mariana Trench is the deepest spot in the world's oceans and only a handful of people have been there. But for the first time, travellers are being offered the opportunity to explore it - if they have a spare $100,000 to $200,000 (£83,000 to £166,000). Isle of Man-based Eyos Expeditions is offering three members of the public the chance to tag along on a dive it's organising to a spot in the Western Pacific trench known as Challenger Deep - 35,853ft (10,928 metres/6.79 miles) beneath the surface. It is, the company says, the most exclusive destination on the planet.

The internet onslaught has been so bad, David Beede said, he’s now getting death threats. Beede told the Tampa Bay Times he thought he was helping the manatee. The video, he said, doesn’t show the whole story. “I thought I was helping,” Beede told the...
  • Dead alligators dropped deep into the sea lead to a surprising find

    01/11/2020 4:07:38 PM PST · by Berlin_Freeper · 69 replies ^ | January 11, 2020 | Bonnie Burton
    Alligators don't typically swim, or die, in the ocean. But researchers dropped three of them, dead ones, underwater to see how deep-sea creatures would react to finding a new and unusual food source. The dead-alligator experiment was aimed at better understanding underwater food systems. Edibles like phytoplankton and other plant life don't exist on the deep-sea floor, so dwellers down there must sustain themselves by eating "marine snow" -- animal waste, scraps of decaying creatures and other organic debris that drifts from above. Because alligators sometimes find themselves in ocean waters, searching for new food sources or flushed there by...

    hen NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew past Pluto in 2015, researchers hoped that its data would help them unravel some of the dwarf planet's mysteries. Instead, the discoveries made during the close-up look at Pluto and its moon Charon revealed more questions that needed answering. One of the big revelations from the flyby was the discovery of an ocean beneath the icy shell encapsulating Pluto. The ice shell was thin in a spot near the equator that's about the size of Texas, known as Sputnik Planitia, which helped researchers notice Pluto's odd topography and suggest the ocean's existence. But this...

    A maritime official says the engines of a cruise ship failed off Norway's coast during a storm because they didn't have enough lubricating oil. Lars Alvestad, the head of Norway's Maritime Authority, said Wednesday that low oil levels were the "direct cause" of the engine failure that stranded the Viking Sky on Saturday. Alvestad says safety systems detected the problem and automatically stopped the engines to prevent a breakdown. Viking Sky's crew sent a mayday call and anchored in heavy seas to keep the ship from being dashed on rocks in an area known for shipwrecks. Five helicopters lifted 479...

    You Tube -- Resisting immigration? Maybe it's just in our natureImmigration officials last week arrested 105 people in New Jersey suspected of being in the country illegally, including four people with international criminal warrants. This came the same week that state officials announced new rules on how local police will handle immigration matters.ICE said the arrests had been planned before state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal released his directive, which the federal agency has criticized. The policy prevents police from inquiring about a person's immigration status unless it is relevant to an investigation. Jails also will not be allowed to detain...
