Aliens In The Sea, Sample Voiceover
The Earth: Blanketed in water, the oceans are a veritable life support system (without which life as we know it would not exist)
Most of the planetÂ’s seas are unexplored by mankind; a multitude of secrets yet to be discovered.
Oceans cover over two-thirds of the globe; an alien world filled with wonder and discovery. Without healthy oceans Â– and the stunning diversity of marine life AND MICROSCOPIC INHABITANTS found within - humankind would not survive.
Every person, regardless of her proximity to the coast, is intrinsically dependent on the resources and services the ocean supplies. Our life support system, we ARE now turning to the oceans for the source of advancements in human health and medicine. For example studies reveal that sharks contain a molecule in the liver that will play a role in the treatment of brain tumors.
Although 80% of life resides within the ocean, only a fraction of the worldÂ’s marine species have been discovered and even fewer have been scientifically documented and studied. WhatÂ’s more, new species are discovered on virtually every expedition that seeks to uncover them.
Some species; however, are so small and foreign that researchers are only now beginning to recognize and grasp their powerful connection to humans.
Below the surface, unseen by the naked eye, thrives a litany of alien-like creatures that may in fact hold the solutions to many of scienceÂ’s most imminent questions.
Unexpectedly adorned with the colors of the rainbow, these animals flourish, dancing and floating in the limitless blue as they conduct their daily lives, drifting with the currents and tides, dominating an environment hostile to man.
Leonid Moroz and his team conduct cutting edge research on these elusive life forms in search of the secrets that enable them to heal wounds in 2-4 hours with no scarring and even regenerate an elementary brain within a matter of days. Oddly enough, it is the simplest of organisms that provide the most insight into the complex brain and in the near future will undoubtedly inform a wide range of treatments for human disorders.
Join our team of scientists and divers as we explore the mysteries of: the Aliens of the Sea.
This program is sponsored by: TBD.
Shimmering in bioluminescence, comb jellies are like translucent balloons rigged with flashing, colored lights.
Vertical rows called combs, made of hundreds of iridescent, hairlike cilia, run the lengths of their globular bodies. Beating in coordinated waves Â– they propel the jellies forward, backward and diagonally in search of prey. With the largest cilia, comb jellies boast the most sophisticated locomotion system in the animal kingdom.
Most comb jellies Â– like many pelagic beasts - are carnivorous Â– preying on other minute and unassuming animals in the water.
Prey themselves often display fascinating defense mechanisms; when agitated, the sea hair defends itself by inking.
Leonid Moroz, of the University of Florida Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience, is a distinguished professor of neuroscience and genetics.
Inspired by the genetic secrets bound within such peculiar, mesmerizing beings, Dr. Moroz has dedicated his life to the study of their inner-workings and potential benefits to human health. (And our planet?)
Colorless and transparent in the open ocean, creatures lights up like a firework display under magnification, revealing a surprisingly intricate structure in constant movement. Even more astounding Â– and complex Â– is the mystery found beneath the surface of the cells Â– Mysteries that can only be understood by deciphering their molecular makeup.
Groundbreaking genomic findings suggest that neurons, complex brains and even muscles evolved not just once but multiple times; a discovery that sheds light onto the field human health and regenerative medicine.
What can mankind learn from these aliens of the blue abyss?
Over 50% of what researchers know about memory came from the study of sea hares.
Perhaps the elements that enable the comb jelly to regenerate its brain, nerves and muscle tissue reveal a potential to do the same in humans.
Imagine, one day Â– possessing the ability to mend the damaged minds of those affected by debilitating neurodegenerative diseases or suffering from stroke and nerve injuries.
At this point in time, scientists have only skimmed the surface of possibilities. A universe of discoveries lies ahead as we reveal the secrets of the Aliens In the Sea.
