Here is the latest video from Brian D. Greene, which showcases the highlights of his recent dive to the twilight zone of the reefs of Pohnpei, FSM. On the expedition, a collaboration between the Bishop Museum, the Association for Marine Exploration, and the California Academy of Sciences, Brian discovered and collected around 30 fish between 300 and 480 feet (90-145 m) below the surface, half a dozen of which are species new to science. Dr. Richard Lawrence Pyle and Dr. Sonia Rowley took the underwater footage – the lens on Dr. Pyle’s camera actually cracked during the dive, but he was able to hold it face-down for the 5-hour-long decompression, and saved the camera itself! There is also some beautiful aerial footage, which Dr. Ross Langston captured with his dji Phantom 4 drone.
