Alien 26





The so-called Immortal Jellyfish became the buzz of the science world in the mid-2010’s, while researchers were exploring how this species can regress backwards in life stages (think, like a butterfly turning back into a chrysalis) and then begin its medusa stage (what we think of as a jellyfish) yet again – in theory, an infinite number of times. Makes me wonder if this specimen is 10 weeks old, or 10,000 years old? Shot while diving off Kona, Hawaii, out over the deep abyss at night. It’s quite small – the bell of this jellyfish measures around 3-4mm.
