NOAA Okeanos Explorer

A recently completed deep sea exploration mission off the coast of Puerto Rico turned up dozens of amazing creatures, including several that don’t even have names as of yet. 

The Okeanos Explorer of the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) research team was fed a live stream from submersible crafts, and scientists from both inside and outside the project logged into a chat room to discuss the new finds as they were discovered.

The area around Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands was chosen due to its diversity of seafloor features–including trenches, seamounts, and canyons–which help spawn a range of life forms.
