Today on Far Future Horizons we present an episode of the National Geographic Channel’s outstanding documentary series “Known Universe” that deals with two endeavours very dear to our hearts, the exploration and eventual settlement of the new frontiers of sea and space. These are the main goals of the organization we are closely associated with – The League of New Worlds.
The League of the New Worlds, founded in September of 1989, intends to establish a permanent human presence in the oceans. In so doing, we will engineer the habitats, procedures and processes for the space frontier. This formal engineering process is called: Space-Ocean Analogs.
Our all volunteer staff of engineers, ocean and space scientists, scientists, aquanauts, students and others all seek the same goal - to build the new outposts, colonies and cities of the New Worlds.
In today’s video feature we will see how the exploration of our planet’s last great frontier is closely linked to the exploration of the vast new ocean of space.
More than 70 percent of Earth is covered in water, but we've only explored roughly 5 percent of it. We've roamed even less of our solar system. Now, armed with some of the latest advances in technology, we join scientists on a voyage into the unknown - from the far reaches of space to the extreme depths of our oceans - where new discoveries have experts questioning everything we know about the universe, and ultimately ourselves.
The "Known Universe" is an exciting documentary series you will want to add to your collection and is available on DVD from the National Geographic store and Amazon.com.
