Jellyfish: April 24, 2016 - YouTube

It appears when you play a movie, a creature of a shape that I have never seen before. It looks like a light bulb or an old-fashioned artificial satellite, and at first glance it should not be a person who seems to be "jellyfish".

Looking at the figure swimming from the side surely makes me feel jellyfish, but it seems to be quite different from the often seen "jellyfish" such as the lighting like a lantern and the tentacles like a strap I understand. Depending on the viewpoint, it seems like a bulb of tulip.

Sometimes, the figure that moves by moving the main body like "gyuto" is certain of jellyfish. It can be seen as an imaginary diagram of "Martian people" depicted in SF works.

This jellyfish is a marine survey ship of the United States Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which is investigating the Mariana trench near Guam in the Pacific OceanOcean ExplorerWhat was discovered by. The unmanned spacecraft "Deep Discoverer" unloaded from the ship at "Dive 4" which was held on April 24, 2016 encountered while exploring hydrothermal vents etc. in the vicinity of "Enigma Seamount" in the deep sea 3700 m. It is probably seen as a member of hydromedusa belonging to the genus Crossota genus.


If you look closely, you can see that tentacles have long and short ones. The one that extends the long one of these to the surroundings as follows is said to be seen as an action to prey the creatures that become food. Also inside the Casa you can see the yellow-emitting reproductive organs and the red tissues spreading around it.

A beautiful figure created by a natural creature often causes his eyes to be robbed, but the jellyfish photographed this time was also drifting in the sea like an object made by an artist . It seems that Okeanos Explorer is exploring the deep sea in real time, as it is delivered by the camera as below, possibly at another moment of discovery again.
