Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. Two quick thoughts for the start of the year:

  1. We’ve managed to explore only about 5% of the oceans in our entire human history to this point. This means that 95% of the oceans remain unexplored.
  2. We’ve managed to explore about only 8 miles down into the surface of the Earth. The Earth is nearly 2,000 miles down to the center.

  1. I learned this from Bill Bryson. It surprises me, but begs the question of how much can we extrapolate about the other 95% from what we have learned from the 5%?
