While our Congress is eager to fund a $2 billion expedition to search for space, 95% of Earths oceans are unexplored. Mark Strauss is the author of the article, he also implys that he wants to know what our ocean has to offer. What else it supplies us with, and new breeds on fish to discover. In hopes of starting a organization to get the appeal of the ocean to win over the appeal of space. After looking at the new species of fish Mark saw that a marine biologist discovered he is convinced to show the world the beauty in the ocean.
Think about this, We have literally explored 80% of the surface of Mars and have mapped it in extensive detail, yet only 20% of the World’s oceans have been successfully mapped says a Marine Biology Major. We are mapping planets we can't even step foot on but haven't thought about mapping a ocean that's been on our Earth for billions of years. Along with higher costs to send material and resources to space, its not nearly as expensive to go deep sea exploring. I support the Marine Biologist, it doesn't add up that we have explored another deserted planet rather than our blooming life filled oceans. Also this article talks about how much our ocean gives us and helps us in varies ways. As advanced as we are in technology due to our helpful ocean. We still have not repaid it in anyways besides polluting our ocean. This article says we need to be more thankful of our ocean and explore it.
As mysterious as our ocean is, space can't fit on a scale on how clueless we actually are within our solar system and galaxy. This article talks about without curiosity humanity would've have discovered as much as we have now. According to Dr. Maz exploration is about knowledge and expanding our horizons and answering questions that we haven’t even thought of asking yet. Through exploration we can gain knowledge about earth, life, and potentially other planets. Adding on, if we keep exploring space, there's no limit on what we cannot find out about our universe.
For being a ocean photographer Gene sides with space in this topic. "ocean, life is found all the way from the surface to the very bottom of the deepest part." He does state that he loves the ocean and has a passion for exploring it but also says without space we would not have revealed more of our ocean. "Satellites are great for giving us that broad picture of the surface of the ocean. We can measure temperature. We can measure ocean color. We can measure the winds, the waves and sea level." So what we can learn from this is exploring space significantly impacted our knowledge on our ocean and we wouldn't have gone as far without the satellites help.
What makes this course support my position is the author of the website explored the ocean as his job and knows what it is like first hand to understand the ocean. He knows all the mysteries yet to be discovered and wants more for his program."As someone who makes a living exploring the deep sea, I have to disagree strongly with Ryan Carlyle on a few points. I would say the amount of unexplored ocean is far greater than 95%," So he states he disagrees with Ryan Carlyle (astronomer). And is in a way telling Ryan we haven't discovered enough of the ocean, which shouldn't even happen because its on our planet.
1, This is a legit website to obtain information from because the author of the page talked to people at N.A.S.A and marine biologists to get both viewpoints." There is something for everyone in the sea—incredible beauty for the artist, the excitement and danger of exploration for the brave and restless, an open door for the ingenuity and inventiveness of the clever, a new world for the bored, food for the hungry, and incalculable material wealth for the acquisitive"-Conservation International's Greg Stone. 2.For the opposing viewpoint it lets engineers get their viewpoint on the situation."While NASA has claimed that its space exploration "benefit[ted] pharmaceutical drug development"-NASA. This gives you the mind set that exploring the ocean would not give you as much benefit as exploring space would.
