The deep sea is the largest ecosystem on the planet—and the least explored. It is a world without sunlight, but not without light. Dr. Edie Widder will describe recent insights into the part living light plays in the deep sea and some of its applications and impacts in hunting cancer, pollution, giant squid, and neutrinos. Dr. Widder, best known for capturing the first video of a giant squid filmed in the deep sea, is a gifted speaker who has done 3 TED talks with more than 5 million views. She is also a committed ocean conservationist and the founder and CEO of the Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA). $7.
