There’s a time at every good house party, usually around 2 a.m., when it occurs to someone that while drinking and dancing is fun, it would be even more fun if everyone got naked and jumped into the pool. Well, at the rager that is Instagram – and all the other filter-heavy, photo-social parties out there – it’s 1:59 a.m., and the clothes are chafing.

Brian Lam, an ocean exploration journalist and the editor of The Scuttlefish and The Wirecutter, recently embarked on a week-long trip to the NOAA Aquarius Reef Base — the world’s last remaining undersea habitat — where he interviewed Sylvia Earle and dove with Fabien Cousteau, the grandson of Jacques Cousteau.
While 60 feet underwater, Brian shared beautiful photographs of his mission through his Instagram account — @blam. Learn more about Mission Aquarius, sharing Instagram images from deep below the blue ocean, and Brian’s desire to document his best adventure yet in the audio above!

Over 400 images were submitted for our Instagram challenge, #WIREDStarWars. Crowdsourcing celebration, the WIRED way:
Thirty-five years ago Star Wars hit theaters, spawning a pop culture phenomenon that has spanned a generation. So to celebrate, we created a community challenge where our readers can show their interpretation of one of our favorite icons.
We created our Instagram account back in March to tell our story in photos, providing a glimpse of what goes on inside and outside the walls of the Wired offices. With the 35th anniversary of Star Wars approaching we thought this was a perfect opportunity to ask you to now share with us. Call it a sort of crowdsourcing celebration.
