A new ecosystem full of unknown creatures has been discovered beneath the ocean floor

The previously unknown ecosystem was discovered as part of a research expedition by the Schmidt Ocean Institute. SuBastian underwater robot equipped with a robotic arm has been launched from the Falkor ship off the coast of Central America. He managed to remove the upper layers from the bottom near hydrothermal vents at a depth of about 2500 meters. There, an ecosystem unknown to science, full of strange animals and chemically synthesized bacteria, awaited the researchers.

Hydrothermal vents

Hydrothermal vents were first noted in 1977 while studying the Eastern Pacific Ridge. It is a product of Earth’s geological activity. They can often be found in volcanically active places or where tectonic plates collide. The stacks can be several meters high and mineral-rich hot water gushes out.
