Incredible footage of a Halitrephes maasi jellyfish captured by researchers aboard the E/V Nautilus 4,000 feet underwater at the Revillagigedo Archipelago off Baja California, Mexico. To wit:
Radial canals that move nutrients through the jelly’s bell form a starburst pattern that reflects the lights of ROV Hercules with bright splashes of yellow and pink,” the Nautilus crew shares. “But without our lights this gelatinous beauty drifts unseen in the dark.
An ambitious concept by Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut for an oceanic city made from a 3D printed combination of algae and recycled rubbish. The jellyfish-like, marina-domed ‘seascrapers’ extendable up to a kilometre deep, would feature renewable energy sources and sustanable food in the form of vegetable gardens, plankton, algae and mollusc farms.
One of many sustainable/renewable/optimistic concepts that can be viewed at Callebaut’s website.
