It’s October 20, 2020, and Dr. Robin Beaman is onboard the Falkor, a research ship operated by the Schmidt Ocean Institute. Sailing along the dazzling waters of the Australian coast, Dr. Beaman is leading a team of scientists who hope to unlock more secrets of the ocean. To aid them in this endeavor, they’ve kitted out the vessel with sophisticated technology which monitors the vast underwater space beneath their ship. And now these instruments have detected an anomaly. Beneath the craft, something is looming – and nobody has seen anything like it in over a century.
