Since the day we started understanding science, we only worked in the direction to know and uncover the secrets of the Universe.
None of us ever tried to pay more attention towards the secrets hidden around us. And those who did, well… they weren’t acknowledged much.
Almost everyone who loves science, loves it for one reason; to learn about space. No one wants to know about the water that surrounds us.
We work everyday in order to be able to understand the workings of the Universe; stars, planets, blackholes, nebulas, and everything else.
But we never try to go deep into the oceans to know the unknown!
Today, we know a lot more about what’s in the outer space, than we know about what lies in the oceans.
And this is disturbing!
I know, being a theoretical physicist who is obsessed with string theory, time travel and everything else up there, I have no right to say this. But, I will.
You see, when I got interested in the subject, much like everyone else, it was displayed to me with photos of outer space on the cover!
Outer space was the only thing that was glorified.
Growing up, our education system laid stress on extra-terrestrial objects. Water was just supposed to be there. It was always taken for granted.
The threats water holds are of much more importance than the ones up there.
Because, you see, proximity and all. Turns out, distance matters!
So, going forward, I would suggest everyone who wants to take up science; try to pay more attention towards Fluid Dynamics.
P.S. No one will do any of that. I know! The governments won’t fund a research on WATER!
