Swimming With Massive Whale Sharks In The Philippines

When it comes down to extreme sports, diving can definitely be one of them. All sort of dangerous creatures live in the deep blue. We've always been taught to stay away from the depths of the ocean and remain as close to the shore as possible. However, there are some people who love going on adventures and searching for all kinds of animals that live under water just to see them from up-close and feel the adrenaline rush! Snorkelers in Osob, Philippines were incredibly lucky to encounter two whale sharks. Actually, they found themselves surrounded by the giant whale sharks while they were out swimming. They swam in the middle of these gentle giants for hours as the enormous creatures swam near the surface. Up to 49 ft long and 55,115 pounds heavy, whale sharks are the largest known fish species on Earth. Despite of being known as the world's biggest shark, the whale shark is actually quite harmless for human. While swimming in the deep blue open sea off the coast of Oslob, Philippines these freedivers encountered whale sharks and decide to make this incredible video. What a breathtaking experience! The clear blue waters in Oslob give these divers plenty of time to plan their photo opportunities with the majestic animals. It is incredible how this enormous whale shark appears to be totally calm and ready to interact and befriend the humans. Incredible! When swimmers spotted the whale sharks hanging out in the waters they decided to approach and catch an up-close glimpse of these majestic creatures. They were eager to see what these massive mammals have to offer so they decided to tag along.

Time-Lapse Of The Lake With 'Earliest Remnants Of Life'

A breathtaking sunset time-lapse of Pavilion Lake, located in British Columbia, Canada. Captured over a 7 hour period, the footage consists of hundreds of photos stitched into this 30 second video. This definitely makes us want to sit back, relax, and enjoy some relaxing time away! Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, like the motion of the sun and stars in the sky or plant growth, become very pronounced. The freshwater lake is actually been designated a Canadian Analogue Research Network (CARN) site by the Canadian Space Agency, as it offers scientists and researchers from around the world the opportunity to study the formation of microbialites. According to scientists, microbialites were common from 2.5 billion to 540 million years ago, but today are normally found in harsh environments, which demonstrates that they can also live in non-extreme environments. Having that in mind, the Pavilion Lake Research Project (PLRP) was established in 2004 as a joint NASA-University of British Columbia project to conduct science and exploration of this lake. It is specifically exciting for the scientists and astrobiologists who are particularly interested research geared towards the search for life in our solar system and beyond! It’s amazing how much we can learn from simply exploring the different areas of our own planet.
