This week, I’m reporting from the Aquarius undersea research base in Key Largo, Florida. The habitat is the world’s last undersea research base. Because NOAA is pulling funding from the 22 year old facility in September, this week’s mission is its last scheduled one.
This article is on the last ocean laboratory which is shutting down due to no funding. This along with NASA pulling its funding and the end of the shuttle program make it seem we are giving up the exploration of the last frontiers. This sadness me.
