Our pal National Geographic has launched a very neat TV series and companion book called Nat Geo AMAZING! The series and book are jam-packed (you guessed it) amazing facts and even more amazing photos and video clips.

Take, for instance, the one above, an exploration of underwater caves:

Blue holes can run extremely deep underground, with one Bahamian blue hole exceeding 600 feet (180 meters) below sea level, and contain a series of mazelike passageways going miles in many directions. These cave systems can transition from giant rooms to tiny holes that divers must remove all of their gear in order to squeeze through. To add to the challenge, currents reverse in the ocean caves, making timing of dives critical. All in all, a difficult place to explore and even more challenging to achieve the range of scientific and filming goals that the team has on their agenda.

... or this one about scientist Valerie Clark whose job is to lick frogs for a living:

And best yet, the folks over at National Geographic are kind enough to spot 4 copies of Nat Geo AMAZING! only for you, Neatoramanauts!

I could never try cave diving. I like SCUBA diving, but being in a cave with no access to a surface and needing perfect timing to deal with tides, not to mention you don't know how deep you'll be going... too scary for me.
