At depths so dark and
Continues to thrive
So my next online course (because learning is good for me and Future Learn courses are free) is Exploring Our Oceans. I am one week in and we’ve covered a bit of the history of ocean exploration. It’s only relatively recently that we’ve found that there is life in the depths of the seas and as part of our discoveries and mapping of this unknown we have found many many new species. The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the world’s oceans and is home to creatures such as the Angler Fish. At over 30,000 feet deep, it is deeper than Mount Everest is high. There’s a helpful chart from the National Geographic to help get your head round that.
