Sea Worm Trail — annotated

Deep sea worm trail-annotatedStill imagery of wreckage of Japanese aircraft carrier IJN Kaga on the seafloor at 17,000 feet. A deep sea worm left a trail as it gathered sustenance from the muddy bottom, evidence of life at extreme depths. In contrast, the Japanese sailor’s boot, preserved for nearly seventy years, was evidence of the loss of life in battle. The seafloor was thickly sprinkled with nodules of pure manganese.
