Ship of Dreams

 

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes”   Marcel Proust

This I HAVE to share with you because it is beautiful, fantastic, jaw droppingly gorgeous footage from a deep ocean exploration. That man can organise the technology and has the vision to be able to start to explore the untapped depth of our planet simply blows my mind. I find this exploration far more exciting than space travel because we live on the same planet and are so alien to all this life and science that co-habits the planet with us. If this doesn’t excite you then I have no idea what could.

David Gallo says this ““Today we’ve only explored about 3 percent of what’s out there in the ocean. Already we’ve found the world’s highest mountains, the world’s deepest valleys, underwater lakes, underwater waterfalls … . There’s still 97 percent, and either that 97 percent is empty or just full of surprises.”

Still lots to look forward to then!! And did you know that rivers run under the sea?
