Unexplored. Hazardous. The inland flooded caves, or “blue holes” of the Bahamas are a treasure trove of scientific knowledge. National Geographic Emerging Explorer Kenny Broad, a diver and advocate for freshwater conservation, recently led an expedition to these dangerous but fascinating blues holes. His discoveries have implications for microbiology, archaeology—even astrophysics. With trademark humor supported by years of scholarship and adventure, Broad will take us with him to his underwater world, as seen in the August issue of National Geographic.

Co-sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton.
