Drain the Ocean | National Geographic Channel
I think even with google
maps, and satellites studying ocean floors (as best they can), there is still probably more known about the surface of the moon than what's below 12k feet down world wide. NG & the Discovery Channel (as well as specialist Oceanographers/Biologists believe we have more unknown species in the oceans yet to be discovered than all the known species, air land & water
dwelling combined known now?
It will be incredible indeed as we all learn more in the "discovery" process.
