Shrimp on Ice



What happens when you drill an 8 inch hole into the Antarctic ice, stick a camera down 600 feet, and then start filming? Well, if you are a NASA research team hoping to observe the undersides of an ice sheet it means you see a really cool shrimp instead. The team found that when they pulled their camera tether up there was a long tentacle, maybe from a jellyfish, stuck to it and a shrimp-like creature swam into view.

Neat.
