Evolution In Action: Jellyfish Lake

The ALUCIA’s quest for discovery landed us in the mountainous jungles of Indonesia’s Raja Ampat’s Islands, where inland marine lakes are allowing scientists to unlock mysteries of marine evolution. Watch as the team treks to a hidden lake to observe and sample rare subspecies of jellyfish found nowhere else on the planet.

Dive into the Deep Dark Ocean in a High-Tech Submersible!

Come join Greg Foot on a scientific adventure diving down into the deep dark ocean! Starting on the deck of the 'Baseline Explorer', you’ll be lifted out into the waves, you’ll be cleared to dive, then you'll break the surface and head down, further and further, until you reach the side of an underwater volcano 250m under the surface, in the Twilight Zone just off the coast of Bermuda! Your guide is Greg Foot - the Science Guy on Blue Peter and popular host of the YouTube Channel BBC Earth Lab [and lots of other stuff on YouTube, TV, Radio and Stage - More about Greg at www.gregfoot.com]. Greg’s drive was part of ocean charity Nekton's mission to deliver the XL Catlin Deep Ocean Survey. Nekton’s mission is to explore and research the ocean, the planet’s most critical, yet least explored, frontier. More info at www.nektonmission.org Huge thanks to Nekton, XL Catlin, Project Baseline, Triton Submersibles, Global Underwater Explorers and all the crew on the Baseline Explorer.

17 Most Unreal Rock Formations

Tourist from all over the world travel to these amazing destinations to see the strange but beautiful rock formations nature has made. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #10 Salt Piles at Salar de Uyuni Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, is one of the most distinct natural landmarks in the world. The immense plains of salt are viewable from space and are a huge attraction for tourists and photographers. After rainfall, the plains turn into an enormous reflective mirror that creates a surreal landscape. The piles of salt ready for harvest only add to the uncanny imagery. # 9 Giant’s Causeway The Giant’s Causeway is a huge oceanside area in Northern Ireland comprised of giant interlocking columns of basalt rock. Most of the columns are hexagonal in shape and perfectly fit together creating a surreal almost game-like environment. Scientifically speaking the columns were created by an ancient volcanic explosion, but it gains its name from the popular legend that the cliffs were built as a causeway by a giant in ancient times. # 8 Balance Rock In the Garden of Gods in Colorado Springs there are a plethora of beautiful red rock formations, but possibly the most iconic of these rocks is Balance Rock - a huge boulder that seems like it could fall over at any moment. It is destined to fall over eventually when erosion or another damage dislodges it from its gripping points. Go and see Balance Rock before it falls over and becomes just a normal rock. # 7 Balancing Rock, Canada There is another precarious rock, but this seems to be even more impossible. The Balancing Rock in Nova Scotia is believed to be standing for thousands of years. It’s about 30 feet tall and seems to be just standing straight up out of pure will. # 6 Fly Geyser This erupting rock is Fly Geyser, an accidental man-made geothermal geyser in Washoe County. The fountain was created in 1964 when people were exploring sources of geothermal energy and accidentally drilled into a well. The well was never capped properly and has now become a geyser that shoots water into the air, creating the ever growing rock formation around it. It looks like a weird alien structure because of thermophilic algae that thrive in the high temperatures Fly Geyser generates. # 5 Split Apple Rock Tokangawhā, aka Split Apple Rock, is a geological rock formation off the coast of South Island of New Zealand. It is a structure made of granite and looks almost like it was deliberately cut in half. This cleft was natural, though, with no help from any humans. What exactly could have cut this boulder in half is a mystery although theories include water creeping into the rock, freezing, and expanding to break the rock. It’s a popular spot for tourists to take the exact same photo every year. # 4 Moeraki Boulders The Moeraki Boulders are unusually large and spherical boulders that are spread along Koekohe Beach on the Otago coast of New Zealand. Local Maori legends explain the boulders as the remains of eel baskets from the large sailing canoe that brought Maori people to the island hundreds of years ago. These stones are usually hollow but sometimes they are filled with calcite and quartz, which makes it look very interesting when they are broken open or exposed. # 3 Folding Rocks at Agia Pavlos These interesting looking rocks are known commonly as the Folding Rocks. They are sedimentary limestone layers were once layered horizontally at the bottom of the sea, but tectonic plates pushed them together and forced them upwards. # 2 Torghatten Torghatten is a granite mountain on Torget island in Norway. As far as mountains go it looks pretty uncharacteristic and lumpy except for the giant gaping hole right in the middle of it. According to legend, the mountain hole was made by a troll who was chasing a beautiful girl. Knowing he could never catch the girl he shot an arrow at her, but the Troll King threw his hat to save her and that hat turned into the mountain. Sounds pretty legit to me. # 1 Abandoned Russian Salt Mine This abandoned Russian Salt Mine looks more like a scene from a trippy art house movie. The naturally occurring minerals in the abandoned mine create psychedelic patterns and structures which create unique swirls. While the naturally occurring art in these walls are beautiful, exploring the mines are not without danger. There are hazards of falling, landslides, and low visibility, but it might be worth facing to see this one of a kind place.

The quadrofoil ‘Q2S’ limited edition is an electric two-seater personal watercraft that propels marine transportation using highly advanced naval technology. often referred to as ‘wings’, the C‐shape hydrofoils that can glide on the surface of the water at over 7.5 Mph. while the ‘Q2S’ rising up to 25 Mph, cutting through the waves with ease and precision. www.quadrofoil.com #4 01:34 Nauti Craft the nauti-craft glides along the sea surface with hydraulic suspension The ‘Nauti-craft’ is a multi hulled vessel featuring a unique hydraulic suspension system for gliding across rough sea surfaces. The system separates the hulls from the superstructure, allowing them to react rapidly to wave inputs and conform with the ocean surface. This provides increased levels of ride comfort, control and stability whether stationary, or travelling at high speed. The added stability can be further enhanced with active control of the suspension system. www.nauti-craft.com #3 03:15 kormaran K7 Luxury Personal Watercraft This versatile luxury vessel can speed on the seas as a catamaran, trimaran, monohull, or a hydrofoil. A pair of hydraulically actuated hulls allows the watercraft to transform on the sea, even when in motion. www.hydros.ch/en #2 04:20 Mokai jet propelled watercraft What do you get when you combine a Kayak with a 4 stroke Honda engine? The Mokai, a jet propelled watercraft that offers over 8 hours of engine powered boating fun on just 3 gallons of gas.

❆✻❅ ✈ 🐠 🐠 🐠 🌴 🌴 🌴 Cocos Islands, also called Ile Aux Cocos, are a group of small islets in the Seychelles archipelago. They can be found 7 km north of La Digue and lies in close proximity to La Digue's other neighbours, Félicité Island and the Sisters Islands. It has been a marine park since 1996 and is a spectacular spot for snorkeling and diving and a popular venue for day excursions from both Praslin and La Digue. No accommodation is offered on this island. Острова Кокосовые острова, которые также называются Иль-о-Кокосом, представляют собой группу небольших островков на архипелаге Сейшельских островов. Они находятся в 7 км к северу от Ла-Диг и находятся в непосредственной близости от других соседей Ла-Диг, острова Фелисите и островов Сестер. Он был морским парком с 1996 года и является прекрасным местом для подводного плавания и дайвинга и популярным местом для дневных экскурсий как из Праслина, так и из Ла-Диг. На этом острове не предлагается длительное проживание.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Costa Rica’s stunning and biologically-diverse Cocos Island was also the inspiration for Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park. Join Alucia’s expedition to this global treasure and take an unprecedented aerial look at this incredible island.
