Scientists fear that even before one of the last frontiers of exploration, the ocean deep, has been properly studied it will already have been exploited by commercial deep-sea mining looking for rare euronews knowledge brings you a fresh mix of the world's most interesting know-hows, directly from space and sci-tech experts.

The world’s first ever deep sea mining operation is scheduled to begin offshore from the Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea in early 2018. In this short film we explore how the two Pacific Island nations of Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu are working together with their communities to manage the future opportunities and impacts associated with this emerging industry. While deep sea minerals could provide much needed revenue for several Pacific Island nations, questions remain about the impacts of mining on the marine environment and the many communities that depend on it for their livelihoods.
Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an une...
Designed by Marin Teknikk and built by Kleven Verft, Norway, the US$157 million vessel will enable Debmarine Namibia, a 50/50 joint venture between the Government of the Republic of Namibia and De Beers Group, to explore diamond deposits and secure diamond supply in the country well into the future
This video shows how colonists make use of modest, pressurized outposts to mine vast deposits of precious minerals on the bottom of the oceanic trench.

Helium is a unique element which is colourless, tasteless and non flammable. It has many applications and is used extensively in the medical, defence, manufacturing and research industries as well as for subsea diving and leak detection. Locally, BOC has invested heavily in helium production, developing the Southern Hemisphere's only helium refinery in Darwin, Australia. The construction of the plant is part of our global strategy to ensure continuity of supply for customers. It is important to note there are distinctions between pure gaseous helium, pure liquid helium and industrial grade gaseous helium. The various types of helium have individualised and specific uses. For instance, helium for balloons is a different product than liquid helium, and hence supply to one sector does no...
