The Microscopic World of Corals – [VIDEO]

PBS’s UnderH20 series takes a breathtaking journey through the microscopic world of corals and their fantastic biology.

Corals are beautiful when seen through your own eyes in sunlight, but for scientists at the University of Hawaii, seeing corals in this manner is not enough. They are using a revolutionary new tool called a laser scanning confocal microscope to take photographs of corals that are one part art and one part science. In this episode, they take us along for a ride with this amazing new technology and show us corals in a way we have never seen them before.
