To the Deep! 9 Days of Adventure: Shinkai 6500
In the summer of 2019, manned submersible research vessel Shinkai 6500, or 6K, visited an underwater volcano northwest of the Ogasawara Islands. The team dived deep into the ocean in search of the rare Alviniconcha hessleri and its mysterious ecosystem. We follow their 9-day mission, and explore how and why the 6K has managed to astonish the world since its debut in 1989. Join us on an incredible adventure to the bottom of the ocean!
