By BBN Staff: Environmentalists, nature lovers, ocean experts and scientists are anticipating the debut of the expedition into Belize’s Blue hole, one of the largest submerged sink holes in the world.
According to Yahoo news, the Discovery channel will broadcast a two hour special entitled, Discovery Live: Into The Blue Hole.
The special will be broadcasting live from the bottom of the Blue hole on December 2, at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time and 1:00 p.m. Pacific time on Discovery. The broadcast will be carried globally.
Belize’s Blue Hole is renowned for its crystal-clear water and its abundance of sharks and sea life. It has only been explored once in 1971 by ocean expert Jacques Cousteau.
“The Discovery special will take viewers to the bottom of the sink hole via a submersible and document the findings. The on-board exploration team will include businessman/philanthropist Sir Richard Branson; explorer Fabien Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau; and Erika Bergman, the submersible’s pilot,” the article says.
The special will be hosted by marine biologist Luke Tipple (Discovery’s Shark Week) and presenter Chris Jacobs (host of TLC’s Long Lost Family and Velocity’s Overhaulin’).
The expedition will explore how the Blue Hole was created and how technology has evolved since Cousteau’s first mission.
After the dive and track of the site, vessels will remain exploring the Blue Hole for two weeks more.
All information collected will be used to assist researchers and scientists to understand how changing sea levels affected its formation and provide key information about climate change patterns, according to Discovery.
