the fractures almost cool because the fractures one was a real mixed bag of stuff at the bottom of the fractures on itself is very soft sediment. There's a whole bunch of different species level in there and then the walls of the fractures all were basically are unbelievably dense manganese poly metallic nodule field, which was one of the spookiest things I think we've ever done. Remember cruising along in the sub around 6000 m, sort of manganese nodule fields, listening to dead bodies everywhere by cars thinking things don't get any weirder than this. Yes, I think it was the one time I've been in a suburb of thought. I don't like it here, I want to go home. It was just unbelievably. It's too speaking, I. D. Y yes, very eerie. And the eyes just couldn't understand what was going on. Just all the gray scale, the black and the white black manganese nodules and this white sediment. And they were just the first place we came down and was just this most unbelievably dense, perfectly uniform field of perfectly round manganese nodules as far as you can see with the lights. And it was so disorientated and you just got to some points during the dive, alan and I would just have to stop the sub and be like my eyes just can't comprehend what is happening out there. We just need to stop for a minute. Let our film is like snow blindness is yeah, it's the great scale of all your your I start to make the highlights and the lowlights shift. Yeah. So rather than being like someone's lost a billion cannonball, suddenly start to look like a billion dimples and the sea floor and stuff like that really plays with your eyes.
