Getting to the Bottom of Our Ocean

Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE
Two-thirds of our planet surface is covered by water and yet what lies underneath is a mystery to us. We know the ocean controls our weather and climate and is home to an estimated half of all species on Earth. However, 95% of the ocean still remains unexplored. We have higher resolution maps of the Moon and the surface of Mars than we do of our seafloor.  Jyotika I. Virmani, Ph.D, XPRIZE, USA Exploring the ocean has long been a challenging endeavour. Historically, access to the deep ocean has been limited for many reasons such as the extraordinary physical challenges... (read more)
