Aliens of the Deep

Synopsis: James Cameron journeys to some of the Earth's deepest, most extreme and unknown environments in search of the strange and alien creatures that live there. Joining him is a team of young NASA scientists and marine biologists who consider how these life forms represent life we may one day find in outer space not only on distant planets orbiting distant stars, but also within our own solar system. Aliens of the Deep is the result of expeditions to several hydrothermal vent sites in the Atlantic and the Pacific. These are violent volcanic regions where new planet is literally being born and where the interaction between ocean and molten rock creates plumes of super-heated, chemically-charged water that serve as oases for animals unlike anything ever discovered. Six-foot tall worms with blood-red plumes and no stomach, blind white crabs, and a biomass of shrimp capable of "seeing" heat all compete to find just the right location in the flow of the super-heated, life-giving water or to fry t

Rovers could rendezvous at the bottom.

This would be a world first.

- Hi,

- Dr, Sagalevitch,

Anatoly Sagalevitch heads

the Manned Submersibles Laboratory

for the Russian

Academy of Sciences.

We've been working together

for almost a decade.

There we are,

The adventurers,

It's all his fault that we're doing this,

because we did Titanic twice,

in '95 and '01,

and we did Bismarck.

Sometime around the middle

of Bismarck, Anatoly says:

"You know, these wrecks are good,

they're interesting,

but you have to do something real,"

"We have to do some science,

Something real,"

Genya Chernaiev

is one of the Russian MIR pilots.

He's been flying submersibles

for over 20 years now.

The most important thing about this boat,

of course, is the view,

This view makes the Rovers unique,

but because of the acrylic sphere,

they can't go as deep as the MIRs.

So they'd only be joining us

for the Atlantic leg of the journey.

We also had Jake,

the little remotely operated 'bot

we'd used to explore

the Titanic and Bismarck wrecks.

Jake had been modified

to test a variety of sampling tools.

My brother Mike is Jake's inventor

and our pilot on this expedition.

His challenge was to steer Jake safely

around the volcanically active vent sites,

and not fry our little 'bot.

This would hopefully allow us

to get up close and personal

with the creatures we'd come to see.

We've checked the decks twice,

all the rigging looks squared away,

My other brother was with us too.

JD was the safety and communications

officer on board the "Ares."

Or, as he called it,

"crap job number 27."

Our launch procedure is as per the book,

Everything's straightforward,

She's first, she's second, Recovery

is determined by Jim from the bottom,

Now, recovery can go either way,
