    I’ve heard of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, but never Sylvia Earle. She like the Amelia Earhart of oceanography (but hopefully without a mysterious disappearance)?

    Wonder how many (besides me) will look up – and subsequently up to – Sylvia Earle after this strip?

    Only Jacques Piccard, Don Walsh, and later James Cameron have been to the actual deepest part of the ocean, the Mariannas Trench.

    I’ve stuck my head into a bucket of water and opened my eyes while breathing through a rubber pipe. Congratulate me.

    I like to go to the deep end of the pool and look around for as long as I can. If I start seeing “sea creatures” it is time to 1) go up, and 2) clean the pool!

    Now that NASA’s been cancelled, there should be lots of

    money for Oceanography but, it’s avery tough degree to get.

    Good luck Alix!

    People ask: Why should I care about the ocean? Because the ocean is the cornerstone of earth’s life support system, it shapes climate and weather. It holds most of life on earth. 97% of earth’s water is there. It’s the blue heart of the planet-we should take care of our heart. It’s what makes life possible for us. We still have a really good chance to make things better than they are. They won’t get better unless we take the action and inspire others to do the same thing. No one is without power. Everybody has the capacity to do something.

    Sylvia Earle had many accomplishments, I still remember reading about her in National Geographic when she broke the human dive depth record in 1979 … see http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/JIM_suit
