The ocean covers about seventy percent of the world, this is a large area that remains undiscovered so it had to be explored as part of a plan to know more about planet Earth. The first time it was explored below sea level was almost 59 years ago when three people went down to investigate a part that is considered the deepest part ever discovered. This was in a deep level in the Pacific Ocean, a place called Mariana Trench. When asked about their five-hour journey, these men stated that they stayed down for less than 30 minutes before they restarted their journey back to the living area.
As fascinating as it was being the first man in history to visit a deep trench, the man said all that could be seen was a foot-long flat fish. The residue of where they landed was stirred up, they couldn’t see anything else however hard they tried, seeing one large flat fish meant that there was enough food on the bedrock to feed these fishes. If there was one fish, then there could be hundreds of them. There was enough oxygen to keep them breathing or alive, it’s a big part of discovery that means that there were other fish species yet to be known by mankind.
One of the many reasons that humans have only noted down less than five percent of the oceans is because we lack resources to explore the deep sea bed, even with some new technologies. The pressure that is found in those deep areas can crush the human body without proper armor to reach those levels, even with the use of ocean floor cars. Other reasons may include that your government fails to set money aside for the equipment to be bought, their claim is that setting money aside to search for the unknown is revenue misuse.
Fear of the unknown is a motivating factor that has left most of the oceans unexplored, the scary thing about it is that we don’t know what is to be found. The sea species that may exist may be harmful to man, exploring some areas may lead to mankind touching things that should be left alone which may result in destruction or worse. This fear keeps the scientists from delving deeper than before, while it is exhilarating to find new things unbeknownst to man, it’s also unsafe or a gamble with the lives of the populating masses.
Efforts to save the oceans from being dirtied by humans was an ongoing thing for a long time, people dump garbage in water bodies, uncaring of the effect it will have on marine life. This causes major destruction, death or even extinction of these animals, some sea plants also get destroyed, the pH of the water changes, it becomes poisonous to mankind, plants along with animals.
The temperature is altered therefore more plants together with animals are destroyed, if this was left to continue, our marine life could be dead by now. Seeing as how water is the most important part of life’s growth, we would be killing ourselves as the days go by, eventually water would dry up. Rain would stop, human life would end, and most of all this planet Earth could become a desert. The government tried to clean the oceans by reducing mass production of nylon paper bags, recycling of plastic products, and banning use of some plastics such as straws. Allowing scientists to come up with other forms of reusable products has helped curb destruction of oceanic bodies.
The extinction of mankind could be a devastating cause even though there is speculation of more intelligent life in space and other planets, it still lacks proof. They lack prior communication with these said intelligent aliens, so the death of the human world creates a void that would take millions of years before evolution happens again to form complex beings. Space has been explored more than oceans because of the growth in technologies, scientists have sent satellites into space, there they have learned about things that have surrounded us for millions of years. When this technology was invested in exploring oceans, we discovered a black hole but that is as far as we went because satellites cannot be sent underwater for exploration purposes.
