Capturing the Deep

Capturing the Deep
See the USS Vandenberg sink to the bottom of the ocean, with breathtaking footage capturing the inrush of water. Renowned photographers David Doubilet and Brian Skerry go underwater to reveal these jaw-dropping images, as the retired warship becomes the newest artificial reef off the East Coast. Then, they head to the Pacific's Phoenix Islands, an area where increased water temperatures due to an El Niño event have caused the coral to die.
