A Newly Explored Undersea Volcano Is Teeming With Alien Life Forms

Quote:Earlier this month, a three-crew submarine dove to Cook seamount, a 13,000-foot-tall extinct volcano off the coast of Hawaii that had never been visited by humans. They discovered dazzling geologic features and a rich array of marine life—including a rare and adorably dopey octopus, and some beautiful purple corals that may be new species.

Seamounts, towering volcanoes submerged thousands of feet of below the surface, are considered undersea jungles, their nutrient-rich waters supporting a panoply of fish and marine invertebrates. They’re also some of the most poorly-explored habitats on the planet—of the estimated 10,000 peppering our oceans, humans have only visited a few dozen. That’s why, on September 6th, Conservation International led an expedition to Cook, whose summit lies 3,000 feet down in total darkness.

The trip did not disappoint.

Sometimes I wonder if the Earth is a one stop life form experience and we, the supposed intelligent species?, are catering to our deep primal desires and destroying it.

Remember the sea creatures living in a place that can't support life when scientists tell you planets can't support life, that all life requires certain things to live or that anything is impossible (like aliens crossing the galaxy or universe.)

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

I believe we're in for some big surprises on these warm alien moons.

Europa is known to have an ocean underneath
it, and is considered one of the best places to have life within our solar system.
That's my bet!
