Discovery of the Oceans

Only three people have been sent down to the deepest parts of the ocean, where as 12 people have been sent to the moon, along with countless other missions.



Scientists need to focus more on the ocean than on space, as there is much more to discover.

Oceans and seas on Earth contain a vast majority of all living things on the planet, far more than on land. In the oceans, people can find the most beautiful animals and plants; such as the Vampire Squid or the Frilled Shark. These animals are what make the oceans so interesting and unusual.

The oceans need more attention, as the only way to truly understand outer space is to study and find life in the oceans. Studying the oceans could help with not only understanding how life started, but also could bring rise to cures to Parkinson’s disease, cancers, Dementia, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and many more terminal illnesses.

Scientists could find species in the deepest, darkest parts of the ocean that are not only alien-like, but also could give the answer to living in such abominable pressures. Finding the answers to the questions of how to overcome the problem of water pressure could bring rise to not only new discoveries, but also to help with explaining how animals adapted to the water pressure and the severe cold.

Studying the geography of oceans could help find some of the oldest mysteries known to man, such as Atlantis, structures of runes that were never even thought of, artifacts that are centuries old, and many more historical items.

There are endless possibilities in the oceans; with abundances of life to study, depths to flood with light for the first time, and places thought to never be able to hold life. Scientists continue to study the oceans, but that doesn’t mean that there are enough people involved in searching the depths below.
