The two famous sea anemones
The expedition found two white sea anemones attached to a rock brought up from the Philippine Trench, more than 10,000 metres below sea level. This moved the depth limit of known life in the sea down by more than 2.5 km.

When the desired depth is reached, a messenger is dropped which breaks the capillary glass tube, thus permitting the collapsed rubber bulb to aspirate a sample of water a considerable distance from the apparatus.
