Ocean floors — here on Earth as well as on other worlds — beckon to be explored…

Hello everyone!

This week on The Cosmic Companion, we’ll be Exploring Ocean Floors from Earth out to distant stars. Later in the show, we’re going to be talking with Catherine Musemeche, author of Lethal Tides, a new biography, telling the story of pioneering oceanographer Mary Sears.

Earth is an ocean world, with water covering roughly three-quarters of the surface of our planet. 

Despite the abundance of oceans around the globe, only a small percentage of the ocean floor has been explored. In many ways, exploring ocean floors on Earth is significantly more challenging than studying other worlds.
