DailyDirt: Getting To The Bottom Of It All

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

If you’re a billionaire, what better way to spend your pocket change than to explore the deepest parts of the ocean? Deep sea diving is almost like being an astronaut, but you’re more likely to find strange new lifeforms that no one has ever seen before. And so far, more people have been to the moon than to the bottom of the Mariana Trench. But that bit of trivia will likely change in the next few years.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Seeing things like this pushes me to become rich, just so I can make scientific discoveries/advances of my own.

Glad to see people pouring their money into something worthwhile, rather than just using it to get richer.

Science generates a need for jobs, a need for smarts, and a need for adventurous people. Best economic stimulus I can think of

Rekrul says:

Jeff Bezos has a privately funded team of deep-sea explorers, and they found discarded Apollo 11 rocket engines at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

The linked article states that the engines are still the property of NASA. Considering that NASA (as far as I know) never went looking for them, or attempted to recover them, wouldn’t that make them abandoned property? Not only that, one could argue that by dropping them in the ocean, NASA was discarding them.
