A breathtaking journey of sea exploration combining marine biology and underwater geology with a history of deep-sea exploration.

The 1930 mission by William Beebe and Otis Barton marked humanity’s first true exploration of the depths. Recent dives are recounted, from Robert Ballard’s journey to the RMS Titanic to filmmaker James Cameron’s recent solo dive into the Mariana Trench—all expanding our understanding of the deep-sea environment.

Come face-to-face with the fascinating creatures that survive where no life was ever expected—“Into the Deep.”

Recommend for ages 8+, grades 4-12.
