Sometimes the world feels boring. All the remote islands are visited, the arctic conquered, the dense jungles discovered. Except, there is still a place to explore: A wet deadly desert where mysterious creatures live in total darkness: The deep sea. Let us dive down.

우리는 아직까지 지구에 대해서도 모르는 부분이 참 많죠. 많은 곳들을 정복하고 해답들을 얻어냈지만, 심해는 아직 알지 못하는 것들이 많은 것 같아요. 재미있는 영상이었습니다

I remember in second grade, me and my class studied the ocean and each of us studied a specific sea creature in it. The way we did the ocean is the start of the classroom (near the door) was the shallowest zone, and the further from the door you went, the deeper into the ocean you got- And at the end in a closet like indent in the room was the deepest zone, and we had painted jellyfish and stuff in glow in the dark paint then used a black light to make them glow ’Twas fun

A desert is an area of land that receives no more than 25 centimetres of rainfall a year, so technically the bottom of the ocean is a desert.

If these deep sea creatures can endure this pressure, what what happen if they are brought to surface ? Would they die? Expand? Get bens? Change?
