Deep Sea II

 

Note:Full text accompanies each panel. Only a portion of this, the introduction, is shown below.

Who needs journeys to Mars to find new life forms? They are all around us and about them and their habits we do not have a clue! We do know that, with every deep sea expedition, new species and new facts come to light. In this arena the British deep sea trawl research vessel, R.S. Discovery, plays a leading role. This vessel, mainly manned by scientists from Southampton Oceanographic Centre, made possible the images in these two panels. It was aboard that vesselís forerunner and namesake that Sir Alister Hardy completed most of his deep water plankton research. Peter Parks was privileged to be invited on two past cruises aboard the new vessel. Plans are being drawn up at this time, to take an IMAX film production into the ocean depths and allow an international audience uniquely to experience encounters with these extraordinary creatures at the same time as they are actually found. We can promise those who may be interested, that they will see life forms infinitely more weird and wonderful than anything that will come from outer space in our lifetimes!
