Video of New Hydrothermal Rift Discovered in Galapagos

by Jennifer Frazer on August 18, 2011

Courtesy of Chris Mah at the Echinoblog, piping hot, fresh video (just weeks old) of a new rift community discovered in the Galapagos by NOAA’s Okeanos Explorer (your tax dollars, should you choose to vote for giving them, at work). One commenter pointed out there’s a red glow at about 1:33 that could even be lava. But mostly, enjoy a few minutes of Zen observing your planet’s fellow passengers, blessedly free of obnoxious Discovery channel voice-over.

Beautiful. Looks like life from some distant planet.

The new-age music is equally annoying to me as a voice-over would be.

Fortunately I can watch and listen to something else.
