Seems like everybody is talking about exploring space these days thanks to multi-billionaires creating their own rocket companies and launching themselves into orbit just to prove that they can.

But, have you ever stopped to think about how absolutely massive the oceans of the world are? Some experts estimate that we’ve only explored ~5% of the earth’s oceans!

This animation by MetaBallStudios compares various depths of lakes, seas, and oceans by progressing from the beach to the deepest point of the Marianna Trench in the Pacific Ocean. It’s absolutely fascinating to see these depths displayed in this format.

Anybody else a little more scared about what’s lying in the ocean after watching this video? 😅
