Humankind has been looking for the giant squid (Architeuthis) since we first started taking pictures underwater. But the elusive deep-sea predator could never be caught on film. Oceanographer and inventor Edith Widder shares the key insight — and the teamwork — that helped to capture the squid on camera for the first time.

I maintain that ocean exploration, like space exploration, should be done by private companies and organizations. NASA hasn’t been working out too well lately!
