The massive ocean structure stands over 1,640 feet tall off the coast of Australia. It’s the largest reef discovery in more than 120 years.

The reef was discovered by an underwater robot named ‘SuBastian’ – and in a truly 2020 twist, SuBastian’s dive was livestreamed on the Schmidt Ocean Institute’s website.
Ever dream of being a deep sea diver? Would you rather visit the ocean floor or outer space?
