From Deep Ocean to Outer Space

Does marine science or astronomy matter most for humankind? Pursuit of a better life in space and research from under the ocean might seem to be opposites but have more in common than you might expect.

 

Space exploration could seem more interesting because of the Cold War and the Space Race since 1947. Oceans got less attention. Technology and spacesuits can already protect against some space radioactive hazards and limitations on living. Public interest in space news often brings interesting facts. The challenge of underwater exploration, meanwhile, is water pressure, darkness, environmental degradation, and budget constraints. Marine science studies can also have limited relevance or impact. The public is therefore more interested in space exploration.

 

Maritime research relates to space exploration, however, in its connection to human well-being. Both marine science and space exploration focus on life in extreme conditions, food security, resource management, and medical science.

 

In the field of future homes, interest has developed concurrently in ​​undersea habitation and space colonization. Governments around the world, private companies, and investors focus more on space to save humanity when the earth can’t support life. Advances in space technology are tied to political interests, geopolitical strategy. But sea studies can support space exploration. The Aquarius simulates gravity for astronauts of the NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (Neemo) program by NASA to prepare astronauts, engineers, and scientists for going on missions.

 

 

Implications for the future:

- Research by marine science and space studies to create more habitable conditions can lead to the use of marine resources for medicines or living under the sea.

- Real estate management and underwater habitat construction will focus on simulations to study space-dwelling without air, gravity, and resources.

- Large habitat migrations, whether in space or underwater, will occur faster if humans cannot maintain the resources on Earth and cannot control them, which is the main cause of the world’s rapid deterioration.
