Summary
In the deep, dark ocean, many sea creatures make their own light for hunting, mating, and self-defense. In this TEDTalk, bioluminescence expert Edith Widder discusses her exploration of this phenomenon and shares pioneering footage of a black dragonfish, a fire-shooter squid, starfish, and a golden coral bush, all of which produce eerie, glowing, underwater light. Widder also discusses the techniques and technology that allowed her team to capture these rare glimpses of deep-sea bioluminescence on film
