It’s amazing to realize that while 6 out of every 7 square miles of the Earth’s surface is covered in water; we’ve barely explored any of that water in great detail. We know more about the moon than we do about the oceans and seas that wash our planet clean.
That, in turn, leads to some amazing discoveries in the water. Both man, animals, and fish have left a lasting impression beneath the surface of the waves. Here are 18 underwater discoveries too bizarre to believe:
18. The Silfra Rift
The Silfra Rift is the zone that separates the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia. In itself that might not be too interesting, though the fact that the water is freshwater and not seawater is unusual. However, what makes the Silfra Rift fascinating is the incredible view offered as the plates drift 2 cm further apart each and every year.
