(This has been sitting in my phone for the longest time, because they are just facts. I took them down when I visited the Art Science Museum for the Deep Sea exhibition. I loved it so much that after attending the press conference, I went back. Here’s what fascinated me the most.)
Blue is the colour that travels furthest in water.
Soundtrack at art installation – from space, NASA. Similar to underwater? There are a lot to discover.
Red is the first colour to disappear in water.
Deep sea corals can live 3000 years down.
Record: animal/living organism – 4200 years. Deep sea corals.
Sea mounts – deeply affected by industrial fishing.
