      I think it depends who you are asking for funding from 😛

      I think that all avenues of science are important. What do you think it is most important to explore?

      We can probably do less damage by exploring space, but on the other hand we need to explore the oceans to see what damage we’ve done to them already and to see what we can do to reduce it. We rely on the oceans as part of our eco-system, and we really do need to understand them.

      I don’t think it is more important to explore either. Exploration of both environments has revealed some truly amazing and useful things.

      I have to agree with Will there 🙂
