YouTube Saturday - The Secret Life of Plankton

This wonderful video, produced as part of the Ted-Ed project, is a excellent introduction to the strange world of plankton. Using new videography and filming techniques, the team of researchers have opened up the oceans' microscopic ecosystem, revealing it to be both mesmerizing and astoundingly complex. Marine biologist Tierney Thys was part of the team responsible for producing the video, and the TED-ED lesson which accompanies it, spook with Jonathan McCrea earlier this evening on FutureProof.
