[Silent] JPL researcher Alberto Behar captured this video of a pinkish-orange creature, known as a Lyssianasid amphipod, swimming beneath the ice of the West Antarctic ice sheet during a joint NASA-National Science Foundation expedition November 2009. The unexpected discovery occurred after Behar and fellow researchers submerged the camera, which Behar designed, down an 8-inch-diameter hole in the ice sheet to obtain what are believed to be the first images of the underbelly of an ice shelf. The camera view is from below looking up.
At a depth of 600 feet beneath the West Antarctic ice sheet, the small shrimp-like creature managed to brighten up an otherwise gray polar day. This 3-inch critter was found beneath the Ross Ice Shelf, about 12.5 miles away from open water.
