ValueMags is in the business of helping magazine publishers to increase revenues and foster relationships with partners in the industry. That is why they sell various magazines on their site. Some of them, like Popular Science, are free right now for a limited time only. There is bound to be a magazine out there for someone to be interested in.
This month on Popular Science there is an article about the remaining uncharted territories left on land. For those who know history, the name Ferdinand Magellan must have popped up. He was an explorer with maps full of blank spaces. With all the cartographers who came along the way and with the help of thousands of satellites, we have today’s map. There are places that are still quite unknown to man. There are unnamed glaciers across the Alaskan wilderness, unnamed peaks on the Patagonian mountains and unseen shores hug the Greenlandic north. Let is not even start with the seafloors too deep for current technology to even go deep enough.
These uncharted parts of the world remind us just how much humankind has left to explore. But with new technology helping us, it will not take so much longer to fully explore the world. There are thirteen parts of the world that are still left to be completely seen. The biggest part would have to be the ocean since nearly every ocean on earth has unswum water with their seafloors only known to the bottom-dwelling creatures that call the area home.
Just think about the number of creatures not yet discovered in these parts of the world. There is an estimated few hundred thousand animals, insects and plants not yet known to man. But as time goes by and humankind gets more sophisticated in their survival in these areas, we will slowly get to learn more about the wonders of the world.
ValueMags, being based in Chicago, Illinois, find these kinds of posts extremely interested. Since people now are more urbanized, they are less attached to land. They go to grocery stores to get their food and are preoccupied with other things in their lives rather than what is needed exactly to produce all the varieties of foods we eat. Through global warming, there are issues where bats for example come out of hibernation too early due to rising temperatures but no insects around to feed on.
