    Default The Last Frontier

    It’s ‘the last frontier on Earth that’s truly not well understood,’ and scientists are about to explore it


    FALMOUTH — In the briny deep, far from shore, the vast darkness is home to tiny, glowing fish, massive jellies that may be the largest animals on the planet, and an untold number of other creatures.

    Perhaps our oceans aren't dying as fast as once thought. This could be a huge discovery in so many ways. Unfortunately, the gold diggers will find a way to exploit this situation too!!
