The race is on to mine the deep sea — but scientists are wary
from National Geographic
Closer than the moon, yet less well-mapped than Mars, the Earth's seafloor is home to otherworldly creatures befitting a science fiction movie. Their remote habitat has caught the attention of humans, who are lining up to begin mining the bottom of the deep blue sea. As technology and infrastructure drive the demand for minerals, and terrestrial resources grow harder to mine, the materials in the deep ocean are starting to look increasingly attractive to countries and companies.
