Here is this week’s essay question: NOAA vs. NASA
Recently NASA began the Mars Science Laboratory mission in a multifaceted scientific project geared towards understanding the history of Mars geology. Meanwhile the Earth’s ocean remains largely unexplored.
If you were testifying before Congress as the head of NOAA or NASA how would you make your case for the continued research in space or here in Earth’s oceans?
Support your viewpoints with references and specific areas of the oceans or space that we haven’t explored.
