Alexander Gerst auf Expedition - In der Tiefe des Atlantiks

Alexander Gerst dives into the underwater world off the Azores: Together with marine biologist Antje Boetius he follows routes of whales and embarks on an expedition into the depth of the ocean at 1000 meters below the surface. Perpetual darkness, cold, extreme pressure: On board a research submersible, they explore hidden coral reefs, bioluminescent creatures and a submarine wreck that has turned into a teeming habitat. A journey into one of the last great wilderness areas of the world that must be protected for future generations.
