    Passport to an Alien World Full of Surprises

    National Geographic revolutionizes the perception that the public had about the oceans, until the release of this documentary. Beautiful photography, interviews with scientists/explorers, and stunning computer-generated imagery, render some justice to a world that still needs to deliver many secrets to humanity. Hopefully, humanity will learn from history, geology, and this media production, how many benefits it has to gain from managing the resources of the oceans responsibly.
