Scientists Find Coral Reef That's Taller Than The Empire State Building

Ocean researchers have made a shocking discovery off the Australian coast - a coral reef taller than the Empire State Building.

The massive ocean structure stands over 1,640 feet tall off the coast of Australia. It's the largest reef discovery in more than 120 years.

The reef was discovered by an underwater robot named 'SuBastian' - and in a truly 2020 twist, SuBastian's dive was live-streamed on the Schmidt Ocean Institute's website.
