Laurie Garrett interviews Dr. John Corliss of Oregon State University, Corvalis, co-head of the Galapagos Research Mission, about the recent discoveries off the Galapagos Islands. Corliss, plunging two miles to the sea floor, found enormous volcanic activity, high concentrations of radioactivity and rare elements, and strange new life forms. The new biology of the ocean alters some of the prevailing theories of evolution. Garrett and Corliss discuss evolution, the content of the earth's core, and the experience of diving two miles below sea level. Produced by Laurie Garrett, with technical assistance from Susan Ohori.
