Abstract:

Marine scientists have mapped the ocean floor and discovered that the "spine" of the earth runs down the Atlantic Ocean, then up through the Indian and Pacific Oceans. It is here that the earth's crust was forged, and it is also where living things first existed. Using satellite images and the latest marine technology, this program contains stunning footage of the ocean floor, the underwater volcanic range that is still active, and the myriad creatures that live there.
