Some information on David Gallo:
David Gallo works to push the bounds of oceanic discovery. Active in undersea exploration (sometimes in partnership with legendary Titanic-hunter Robert Ballard), he was one of the first oceanographers to use a combination of manned submersibles and robots to map the ocean world with unprecedented clarity and detail.

He was a co-expedition leader during an exploration of the RMS Titanic and the German battleship Bismarck, using Russian Mir subs. On behalf of the Woods Hole labs, he appears around the country speaking on ocean and water issues, and leading tours of the deep-ocean submersible Alvin.


The ocean has always fascinated me. I find it astonishing that all in all so little is known about the ocean yet it is such a huge part of Earth, it's full of many amazing and mysterious creature. The bioluminescent patterns are beautiful and I find the camouflage adaption ability incredible. :tmb:

Great video!

If you haven't seen the Discovery Channel's Blue Planet, (http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/blue-planet/blue-planet.html) you should. It's an amazing four episode documentary. I've seen in it I've never seen before in a lifetime of watching every TV special on the ocean.
