There is a massive southern ocean current almost two miles below the ocean's surface. Recent measurements found it’s the strongest current ever recorded at this depth and transports 40 times as much water as the Amazon River. The current carries dense, oxygen-rich water and has a direct influence on temperatures around the world. Part of the "News of the Day" series.
