The Deep Sea @ Natural History Museum (Until 5 Sept)

August 9, 2010toSeptember 5, 2010

angler-fishYour imagination stops at 100 metres, but the Natural History Museum’s new exhibition will take you down 11,000 metres.

The Deep Sea plunges you into the abyss, revealing a deep-sea environment less explored than the surface of the moon. With bizarre creatures that have adapted to their harsh world in wonderful ways and extraordinary yet fragile biodiversity, you will discover the history of deep-sea exploration, cutting-edge technologies used today and learn how Museum scientists are helping to preserve this important ecosystem.

Exhibition highlights include seeing the Bathysphere steel ball and modern exploration devices, riding in a submersible, discovering how a carcass can become a rich ecosystem, and looking at real specimens, some on display for the first time!
