More than 80% of the ocean remains unexplored.
One of the biggest challenges of ocean exploration comes down to physics. Dr. Gene Carl Feldman, an oceanographer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, explains that the ocean, at great depths, is characterized by zero visibility, extremely cold temperatures, and crushing amounts of pressure.
“In some ways, it’s a lot easier to send people into space than it is to send people to the bottom of the ocean,” Feldman told Oceana. “The intense pressures in the deep ocean make it an extremely difficult environment to explore.”
I believe around ten percent of the upper most part of the ocean has been explored and ninty percent remains.
No, all land on Earth has been explored. However not all areas of the Ocean have been explored because we are not advanced enough in technology to go as deep as the Ocean floor is in some parts of the Ocean.
none of it, I am not an explorer
The ocean and the underground. Humans have not completely explored them yet.
The ocean covers about 70 percent of Earth's surface. It is so vast, that only 5 percent of surfaces underwater have been explored.
Within Carlsbad Caverns itself, about thirty miles of tunnels have been explored. Within the park is Lechuguilla Cave, which is much longer at 138 explored miles.
I do not know too.
The abyss is the deepest part of the ocean that has not been explored. There is a movie that was made about it in the eighties I think.
Anything beyond the continental shelves. More people have walked on the Moon than have been to the bottom of the 'deep ocean floor'.
Because it is too big to explore all of it. The ocean is like half of the world and the whole world hasn't been exploreed yet.
For the most part, the deepest parts of the the oceans have not been explored. However, in 2012, James Cameron reached the bottom of Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean. When he got to the bottom he was at 35,756 feet.Ê
Roughly 2 percent even then theirs ocean under ocean so that just lowers the number nobody can go to depths such as these even the best technology could try it but the mysterious ocean still has more to be explored.
This is pretty much impossible as there are millions and millions of creatures and plants in the ocean. And only a fraction of the ocean is explored. Our oceans are like our Universe. A mystery.
Being the longest cave explored (350 miles)
Challenger deep is in the ocean, it was never explored by spacecraft.
The ocean is one of the least explored places on earth.
Yes, the RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean. It has been explored, but that is where it still remains.
yes Uranus has been explored by the voyager 2.
The Titanic was explored using robotic and manned submersibles that were capable of diving to the depths in the North Atlantic Ocean where the Titanic lays on the bottom of the ocean.
Magellan explored the Pacific Ocean through the Strait of Magellan, he explored the Spice Islands in Indonesia, he explored the Philippines where he died and some South America.
It has never been explored by humans and never will.
Every planet except Pluto has been explored by spacecraft.
