Milstein Science Series: Capturing the Ocean's Glow

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 01-05-2014 29-05-2014 15 Milstein Science Series: Capturing the Ocean's Glow Take a night dive into the coral-rich waters of the South Pacific's Solomon Islands, where a cast of biofluorescent creatures on a reef wall surround you in eye-popping colors. Most of the glowing species you see - corals, anemones, crinoids, and even fishes - had never been known to be biofluorescent until American Museum of Natural History scientists built the technologies to discover them at their brilliant best. In Capturing the Ocean's Glow, John Sparks, David Gruber, and Vincent Pieribone descend in scuba gear and a submarine outfitted with powerful blue lights that stimulate the covert colors to emerge. This remarkable footage enables us to see these vibrant environs as a reef fish might. Most of this footage was captured in September 2013, during the first expedition in the Museum's pioneering series of large-scale field projects called Explore21. The initiative supports multidisciplinary teams and innovative technologies to fuel scientific exploration and discovery for the 21st century. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=162241 American Museum of Natural History true DD/MM/YYYY
