What would you rather see more funding for? Space, or Ocean?

Would you rather see more money put into the study of space or the ocean? (If one had to be chosen)

I'd say oceans, there seems to be a lot more to discover down there. I know there is more space to be explored, but not in my lifetime, I'd love to see what else is down at the bottom of the sea.

We (private associations) already have the technology to the deep sea.
Yes, there are THOUSANDS of more species to be discovered on dry land and the ocean too. 

but imagine the sciences that will be discovered in the deep space. It'll take a lot more money and time (beyond our life time) but we can learn about space from earth here.

I hope the do something with Mars before I die.

I'd have to go with ocean, I really never was into the whole space thing. I remember seeing the planet earth specials on deep oceans and shallow ones, and the species that are down there are incredible. 

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

You said we already have the technology but then itll take too much time and money to learn about it? Is it me or is there a contradiction there?

Say word tho theres many undiscovered species on dry land too? Mind droppin some info?
I meant we have the technology for ocean exploration. my bad.

hol up, i'll get some sources for that. I read it in a nat geo article. (these dues found a spider last year that was transparent and lived in the dark w/ no food sources or water)

Scientist have basically estimated that there are about 8million + species on earth. and we have about 1.7million+ discovered so far.

watch the vid, if you're interested.

I can't find the article I read, but this shit is crazy to learn.

if you're into chemistry there's this dude who worked on the periodic table (mendeleev), he set up our basic set up of the table, according to atomic number and weight. as he set up the table he notice that there were missing spots. 
this dude predicted a lot of the atomic mass and properties of the undiscovered elements (at his time)

shit is crazy imo.

I think even if we had gills i wouldnt spend that much time underwater, the fact you cant see a few feet in front of you in the deep ocean and not knowing whats there scares me

More research on the Bermuda triangle, look for Atlantis, look for ancient fossils deep down the ocean.
The scientist would turn to the ocean first for oil in the near future which means they would try to go deeper for oil deposits down there.

Definitely ocean. OP said it for me in the fact that anything significant we do or find in space probably won't happen in my lifetime. Where as ocean, there's still so much unexplored and it's right in our backyard

Space, in the long run it's going to be a lot more useful, regardless if I'm alive at the time or not. The possibilities of space are practically endless. 

In my mind, exploring the sea gives us a look at our past, with unseen fossils, creatures, ruins, etc. Which is very interesting, don't get me wrong. But space is a necessity to the future. I highly doubt that of the millions of galaxies in our universe, Earth is the one planet capable of sustaining life and having vast amounts of natural resources, as well as resources we currently aren't aware of.

space is more important.  ocean exploration will occur gradually over time and the seas ain't goin nowhere while other galaxies keep getting further away.  what happens if we run out of fossil fuels/gas in a thousand years?  what if a meteor hits earth?  going to other planets will be our only hope.

not that i give a fuck if life on earth ends.

I feel like space is more interesting but we should put more effort into the ocean since it's right here

Ocean first then space. At least we can REACH the fucking ocean. Might find some mermaids or sum shit.

Ocean would be easier though it makes you wonder we have been here forever and have got to the moon/ other accomplishments but why haven't we found shit out about the oceans? Are we hiding shit or just that lazy?

I would have to say space, because relatively speaking (as in current funding vs funding needed) ocean exploration already has a lot more than space. We've already been to the deepest part of the ocean floor and discovered a lot of new species. I think it's important to continue this, but we haven't even scratched the surface of space exploration. We went to the moon in 1969 with the technology of our calculators, imagine where we'd be if we actually continued space exploration. All other areas of technology has been increasing exponentially, yet after we went to the moon for some strange reason we just stopped.

Space,
Although the deep sea is super interesting I would like to discover other forms of life in space somewhere. We already know that there are different species down in the oceans.
