It gathered all types of marine life that was just being seen for the first time. They learned the basics like what temperatures of the ocean in certain spots were and along with it all they learned of oceanic currents (Dive and Discover). They also were able to identify 4,000 new types of marine life (Sir John Murray-the Founder of Modern Oceanography). After they got back from the expedition Sir Wyville Thomson started to write a 50-volume Report on the Scientific Results of the Voyage of H.M.S. Challenger but started to come down with stress and eventually died. He left the job of finishing it all to his assistant John Murray. This was one of his major contributions to helping identify more on the ocean (Sir John Murray | biography).

The camera pans to a metropolis skyline fully lit up in the darkest of the night, but to be seemingly abandoned. You are shown empty interstates, parking garages, shipyards, and gravel roads, that continue…

Nicias attempts to dissuade the…
