We know more about the Moon than our own seas.

by Maison Horton

It's for this reason that the deep sea can seem like such an alien place, a place where lava seeps from deep within the earth and strange fish glow like eerie ghosts. Because of the absolute darkness and high pressures, it's challenging for humans to make extended voyages to the depths. Take a glimpse into the unknown with this display, and make sure to enjoy the sunnier sights along our journey to the ocean floor!
