Let’s Begin…

Ocean explorer Robert Ballard takes us on a mindbending trip to hidden worlds underwater, where he and other researchers are finding unexpected life, resources, and even new mountains. He makes a case for serious exploration and mapping. Google Ocean, anyone?

In 2008, if you compared NASA's budget to NOAA's budget, you could fund ocean exploration for 1,600 years.
