The sea has captivated men since the beginning of time, preserving countless mysteries beneath its ever-changing surface. From the very first diving bells to the submarines that now take men miles deep, DEEP SEA EXPLORATION is a thrilling trip through the history of man's efforts to uncover the oceans' secrets. Enter the strange and silent world of the deep to see the incredible creatures that dwell there, and learn why oceanic exploration helps scientists understand how the earth's biosphere functions. Explore landmark discoveries that shook the scientific world and meet the scientists who made them men and women like Dr. Fred Spiess and the astronaut and oceanographer Kathryn Sullivan. And trace the development of the machines that allow us to visit this alien world from Charles Beebe's Bathysphere to the Trieste which descended to a world's record depth of 35,810 feet into the black waters of the Mariana's trench. Filled with spellbinding footage from the mysterious world of the earth's deepest waters, this is a comprehensive, captivating chronicle of exploration and discovery.
