''"When lava pours out near the sea surface, tremendous volcanic explosions sometimes occur. In time, submarine sea-mounts or islands are formed. When lava flows underwater, it behaves differently. And a new contraption to capture a 'dandelion' in one piece has been put together by the crew. The preparation for a dive is always a tense time. When lava pours out near the sea surface, tremendous volcanic explosions sometimes occur..."''
* Play "[[Dandelion]]" in reverse, and a richer melody will become evident. The "[[Dandelion]]" of the track is apparently a deep-sea creature, perhaps an anemone. Attempts to bring one to the surface resulted in its disintegration because of pressure changes. The narration describes attempts to make a device to bring one to the surface intact.
