    That is very cool…and scarytimes! Hydrogen sulphide is one of the things water-treatment and sewer pipeworkers have to be very careful of, since inhaling it can kill you! Although I hope divers aren’t inhaling…underwater, youknow. Anyhoo, this is not something you see every day!

    • sander

      yes, the divers are actually inhaling under water….. idiot

  • andcene

    that is one of the coolest things ive ever seen

    holy sheeeeit!

    Yo dawg, i know you like water, so i gave you water in your water so you can swim while you swim

    I thought for sure you meant underGROUND until I went thru the page. WOW.

    it can’t/shouldn’t be hydrogen sulphide. It is only becomes a liquid around -60 C (-140 F). If it really were that cold then the sea water would have frozen, and certainly the diver would have!

    So, Thats how Spongebob takes a bath underwater

    Yeah, H2S gas would need to be -60 Celsius to become liquid but this isn’t liquid hydrogen sulfide. It’s aqueous hydrogen sulfide. It’s H2S-2H2O. Obviously that makes it way heavier than H2O by itself and so it settles even in salt water.

    I have Earth DVDs that are also episodes on the discovery channel, but there’s one on caves, and this entire scene where the divers have gone under the incredably clear water (duh, they’re divers) and they go under the layer of salt water and it looks like they’ve been floating in air! I sooo wanna go somewhere likke that.

    It could also simply be an extreme representation of a thermocline.

  • Anon

    Maybe it doesn’t need to be -60 degrees Celsius to be liquid due to the immense pressure ?

      No really, the divers are wearing standard SCUBA gear… so it is highly unlikely that they are deeper than about 200 meters (that is ‘only’ about 20 atmospheres). Like Nateb123, this is likely aqueous hydrogen sulfide.

    • Bill Nye

      Wrong website, Kang.

      And at least the divers were smart enough not to try and go into it. Since it's a weak acid, would it have eaten at the wet suits?

    Impressive. Your quote, not the water. Well the water is pretty sweet too.
