The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences presents “The Egg”, a video short from the 2011 BIOS Explorer program’s “Water Moves” series. Watch what happens when they crack open a raw egg 60 feet (20 meters) below the surface!
The yellow yolk suspended in the clear albumen floats and wobbles like a melted wax blob in a lava lamp. The diver then forcefully claps the egg between his palms into a seemingly cloudy dust for a theatrical finish.
