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

At the centre of our existence

is a powerful dynamo.

The sun.

It gives us heat and light,

and drives the great engine of life.

It's the food chain,

and we're all a part of it.

No matter who you are,

even if you're a hardcore meat-eater,

your dinner started with plants

somewhere turning sunlight into food.

So we are, all of us,

solar powered.

Maybe the ancient Egyptians

were right to worship the sun.

For four billion years,

the sun has given life to everything,

on land, and in the sea.

Rover One, this is Rover Two,

We are at the edge of the wall

and are beginning our descent, Over,

My name's Dijanna Figueroa, and I'm

a PhD student at UC Santa Barbara.

- This is cool,

- Copy that. Starting descent. Over.

I think I have

one of the coolest jobs in the world.

Check out those

corkscrew coral down there,

I'm a marine biologist.

I get to go to the bottom of the ocean

and study the amazing organisms

that live there.

There's nothing I'd rather be doing.

Rover One, Rover One,

do you copy?

This wall's pretty amazing,

We're barely on the edge

of photosynthesis right here,

Ambient light's really going now,

You're totally reliant on

the technology that's in your little bubble

to dive to that depth

where it's just a mystery down there.

You never know what you're gonna see.

- Look at all that krill,

- Oh, my gosh!

Looks like we're in

krill heaven over here, Rover One,

Yeah, roger that. Pretty incredible.

Not seeing much of anything alive here,

Dijanna, What about you?

Not much life at all, I think

we're pretty much out of the photic zone,

It's like being on the moon, huh?

Copy that,

Hey, look, we got a crinoid right down here,

Hey, Dijanna, we got a crinoid here.

We finally found a citizen.

Copy that,

Yeah, it looks like we're getting deeper,

and most of the animals down here

look like they're suspension feeders,

or particle feeders,

With no light from the surface,

not much can survive down here.

But there are places in the ocean

where sunlight has never reached,

not since the world began,

and yet amazing life forms thrive there.

So when I was invited to join the new

expedition to explore these places,

I had to say yes.

"Keldysh," "Keldysh,"

"Ares" bridge.

Yeah, Dave, we're about to begin dive reef right now,

We got MIR One

going into the water at...

Like this, so that we've got a central area

to work, Rover One is gonna stay...

I'm Jim Cameron,

and here's the deal.

I love this stuff.

Exploration. Real honest-to-God

deep ocean exploration.

This is way more exciting than

any made-up Hollywood special effects.

These deep ocean expeditions

always seem like space missions to me.

So, why not combine

outer space and inner space?

Sure, we'll take marine biologists.

But why not take astrobiologists

and space researchers?

So that's how a bunch

of space scientists wound up out here,

a thousand miles from the nearest land,

where, right under our feet,

down in the darkness,

are the most insane alien life forms

that have ever been discovered.

Two ships,

four manned submersibles,

forty dives at ten sites

in both the Atlantic and Pacific.

I like big operations,

but this one was off the hook.

So we'll come down together, like this, and

we'll try to stay a couple of meters apart,

because we don't want to drift off,

If the communications are compromised

with the multiple subs in the water,

all working on the same frequency,

some in Russian, some in English,

I want to make sure

we stay on visual...

The plan was to coordinate a four-sub dive,

using both ships, so two MIRs and two
