赛车到底:探索地球上最深的点

很好地写在大西洋关于X奖,以深入了解挑战者。故事涵盖理查德布兰森’圣母农村,詹姆斯卡梅伦’深深的挑战团队,和布鲁斯·努力’s Triton Submarines. 布兰森 ‘s, 卡梅伦 ‘s, and jone ‘在DSN介绍了努力。

现在,超过50年后,人类几乎准备好恢复挑战者。然而,这次,他们’Re计划留下一段时间,收集样品,录像机在那里可能在那里,送出小型远程操作的水下车辆(ROV),然后带回家1000万美元。今年早些时候,X奖金基金会使奖金提供给第一个私人资助的潜水,以便对挑战者进行两次访问。然而,这笔钱不仅仅是证据,即人类对极端着迷的证据:攀登珠穆朗玛峰,在月球上行走,寻找海洋的地板。一百万美元只会覆盖到底部的比赛。它确实是一场比赛;一个有至少三个竞争对手的竞争对手,每个竞争对手都追索奖品。

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
