    I’ve always dreamed of getting hundreds if not thousands of small autonomous drone subs and visually picture/record most of the sea floor (mostly with the idea of finding every sunken ship that hasn’t disintegrated). This seems like a step toward that goal.

    Can’t wait till we can completely map the entire universe so the government can plant its flags and tax people who who go there.

    How close are we to mining the moon/asteroids? The Boring Company need to get in on that!

    The people mapping the Ocean should create a youtube channel and then ask for subs

    Instead of wasting time and money trying to map the ocean floor why not use those resources to help people with mental illness such as people identifying as genders different to that of birth

    Has anyone looked into vertical reefs?

    Why do we need to map oceans. Did the ocean creatures requested for a gps system? I feel its better humans mind their business on land and leave sea creatures alone..

    Develop a reasonably cheap and easy to use/install device that scans the sea floor, then do a marketing campain saying that if you are a ship owner private or commercial and want to partake in mapping the sea floor, contact us and we will come and install the device on your ship.

    there are hundreds of military nuclear submarines wandering around in case there is a war… but there isn’t a war, and they need to be running to keep up crew training. Could they be used during peacetime to provide the world with much better maps? Just like GPS has more value for civilian uses than just military, the maps of the ocean floor would be valuable, and almost *free* if we just assign some subs to do that as part of their routine duties.

    3 billion is nothing and it would only take a year to complete, hell let’s just do it already. Somebody start a kick starter I got $20 on it.

    It might be “really disappointing for anyone who’s thinking about doing business on the oceans, managing the oceans, thinking about how TO GET WHAT WE NEED from the future of the oceans”, but I bet Marine life is happy about it! Personally I think we screwed things up enough “managing” our land and it’s “resources”. Resource, the name implies the source gets replenished, but not once Humans get their greedy hands on it. I admire your optimism, Trace.

    How close are we to mapping the Earth’s iterior (the entire crust, the mantle and the core)?

    One way to cut the cost, cut all the unnecessary wars. What are the priorities?

    You know the American military is a massive sham when it hasn’t used its bajillion dollar budget to map the ocean in what would be probably their most valuable strategic expenditure to date. Certainly more useful than that joke of a fighter jet they’ve been developing since before the Civil War.

    Wait isnt 5m resolution better than 100m resolution. If it means u can see things 5m and larger

    Here is what we need to do. We need to take those almost 2 Trillion Dollar the Word spends on Military and put it in use for science, education, humanity, sustainability and nature. Thats the only logic thing to do and if we dont do this soon we will not make it as a species. Evolution or destruction. We are crossing this pivotal moment right NOW.

    I’d rather have things the way they are. Nothing comes good from our greedy governments when it comes to the economy and ecosystem
