Well scientific research is different, in the way that profit is generally not involved (if you work
for universities and academic institutions, such as the one managing the ship), there are no secrets, and actually, science should always be as open and transparent as possible... but I can understand if "secret" fishing
spots are involved, but that is just a planning chart of the Southern Ocean guys...it was a scientific cruise
, and we were not looking for oil
fields, deep-sea minerals or sunken treasures...Just studying "worthless" oceanography, climate change, and plastic pollution...
Anyway, i seriously think that misinformation and fake news about Russia
are a big thing, especially in US and AUS...not such a big thing here in EU...i think that people should stop blaming Russians as the bad guys, and be a bit more critical about the disproportionate political and economic power
of large corporations in the Western world ... But this is politics...and i was just looking for a nice nautical chart of Antarctica to hang in my boat...
