While space has always been the seen as the final frontier, innovative forms of oceanic exploration are exposing new findings about the largest habitable area on Earth. Through the use of advanced exploration technologies, it is estimated that more than 95% of the world’s oceans remain unexplored. The deep sea – which is defined as 600 feet below the surface – is home to rare and complex ecosystems. New exploration has found previously undocumented life forms, expansive coral reefs, hydrothermal vents, and the archeological remains of ships. The potential of deep-sea exploration is manifold. Understanding tectonic plate movements on the seafloor could deliver valuable insights into predicting natural disasters, including earthquakes and tsunamis. Harnessing hydrothermal vents could provide energy sources for greater exploration of the oceans. Discovering new species and ecosystems can allow a greater understanding of how the Earth has evolved over time. And as humans have been sailing the oceans for thousands of years, the ocean floor is a museum of human history waiting to teach us about our roots.
Oceanic Exploration Is True Final Frontier
