Cleopatra's tomb has never been discovered. Yet she is one of the most famous Pharaohs, ruling as Queen of Egypt more successfully than her forebears.

 

What lost treasures might we discover as the mysteries of the deep unfold, armed with new underwater technology and an army of freshly educated researchers with an interest in the deep.

Both Outer and Inner spaces, are areas where humans cannot breathe naturally. So cannot sustain human life. They are alien to us. But the life beneath the sea sustains life on land reliant on oxygen. Hence, is vital to human survival.

 

With our intelligence, we have artificially overcome our natural evolutionary barriers, to travel faster over water, and fly at supersonic speeds. We have even escaped our atmosphere into space, and gone to the Moon and back, as Jules Verne predicted. We have also been underwater in submarines, just as in '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' and to the bottom of the ocean in bathyspheres.

 

And now we use remotely operated unmanned vehicles with cameras and sensors, to explore without breathing apparatus. Enabling us to re-discover wrecks like the Titanic and Ernest Shackleton's 'Endurace,' recently discovered on the 5th March 2022, 107 years after sinking in 10,000 feet of water in the Weddell Sea. 

 

If the importance of our oceans was taught in schools, as part of an educational curriculum, they may not have become so polluted and acidified as they are today. They may also be better understood and documented.

 

Ocean awareness, or literacy is not presently high on academic agendas. It is a shocking statistic that we know more about Outer Space, than we do our underwater kingdom. Televised documentary programmes have done a great deal to make life under the waves more popular, highlighting the marine litter problem that is of major concern to marine biologists. With plastic now seen in the remotest corners of the globe and deepest trenches of the ocean.

The ocean has swallowed umpteen civilizations, just the past 10,000 years. We may never discover other lost towns and cities, such as to understand our past, or even explore those we know of, unless the secrets of the ocean are shared.
