Swimming In A Vortex Of Sardines Looks Quite Beautiful

Video: There’s nothing I want more in the world than to be surrounded by so many sardines in the ocean that it looks like you’re stepping into a magical vortex that will transport you to another dimension. Which means, I need to book a ticket to the Philippines, drive to the airport, figure out how to get to Moalboal, Cebu, rent a scuba mask, take a deep breath, and then dive into the ocean.


The US Navy's Futuristic New Diving Helmet Turns Sailors Into Minions

The US Navy is developing a new diving helmet fitted with something called Divers Augmented Vision Display (DAVD). It’s essentially a fancy underwater HUD. But really, the whole setup basically looks like a high tech Minion costume.


Cave Diving Is Like Exploring A Dark Underworld

Video: Here’s some chillingly beautiful shots showing what it’s like to cave dive the ‘El Toh’ cave in Yucatan, Mexico. It’s a completely different world down there. When you’re inside the cave with water all around you, it looks a lot like being in an underworld you’re not supposed to see. Some parts are haunting and other areas look alien, but almost all of it is just so damn cool.


Terrifying Great White Shark Attacking A Cage Is Like Real-Life Jaws

Oh. My. Holy. Bananas. This shark attack video from Hillary Rae shows a 3.5m shark biting and gnawing and trying to rip open an underwater cage with such fury and abandon and ferocity that it looks like the killer beast might actually break through. You get an up-close view of the razor sharp teeth and feel the enormity of the monster.


This Team Discovers 14 New Species An Hour, But They Have An Enemy

You’ve heard that we know more about space than we do the deep ocean. But did you know it’s so unexplored that scientists discover new species just 200-500 feet down, sometimes at a rate of 14 an hour? A (sort of) manmade enemy threatens those efforts though, and they can’t kill, study, and eat it fast enough.


Swimming With A Million Fish Looks Like Being In A Teleportation Tunnel

I’m not exactly sure I know what a teleportation tunnel actually is, but I’d imagine it would look a lot like this. This being swimming with a million silverside fish in the ocean. It’s beautiful, like travelling through organic warp speed or being a part of a swarm from a sci-fi movie that’s about to swallow you or something.


The Stunning Beauty Of Diving Into A Deep Dark Abyss Inside The Ocean

Wow, just wow. It’s breathtaking (literally, if you try to hold your breath like the free diver in this video) to watch free diver Guillaume Néry just fall into a dark abyss in the ocean. It’s like he’s getting sucked in and will never resurface because he’s exploring unknown worlds hidden underneath our planet.


Being Trapped Underneath An Icy Lake Is Terrifyingly Beautiful

Diving underneath ice might be the easiest way to be transported into another world that’s completely unlike ours. You need the correct equipment and you never want to be really trapped, but it looks completely ethereal. The colours, the shapes, the ceiling, it’s all so pristine and so beautiful.


Why This Astronaut Thinks NASA Can Save Humanity From Extinction

Astronaut Daniel T. Barry thinks NASA’s mission to Mars is humanity’s most important endeavour yet, for reasons including the birth of Captain Kirk. We talked to him about what it’s like to explore the Final Frontier.


Swimming In An Iceberg Is Like Being Inside The Fortress Of Solitude

Swimming inside an iceberg looks amazing because the ice looks like glass and that’s crazy, and because it kind of resembles an underwater version of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Or at least, like a crystal palace. National Geographic shows us how a free diver explores the ice cold waters below.
