Alien Deep It's Alive

Alien Deep It's Alive

Oceanographer Dr. Robert Ballard is on a global quest to unravel one of the world's biggest mysteries – where life on Earth began. Ballard suspects life may have gotten started where hot rock and water collide in one of the world's most seemingly hostile environments – active volcanoes deep within the ocean. He tracks teams of scientists as they deploy robotic submersibles at deep sea volcanic rifts across the world's oceans, points his own ship to a dangerous undersea volcano in the Mediterranean, and hunts for answers amid hissing sulfur vents in Iceland and bubbling beakers at a NASA laboratory. Could the seething geologic heart of our planet actually have given birth to life on Earth?
