Mysteries Of The Oceans: Searching For Lost Objects In The Deep

Human's scientific knowledge reaches far and wide, particularly when it comes to the Earth's surface, but we are just beginning the exploration of Earth's deepest reaches, the oceans.  On this edition of Up to Date, we talk with oceanographer, Dr. David Gallo, about new discoveries and how the vastness of the oceans makes it difficult to discover the largest things we lose, like airplanes. 


  • Dr. David Gallo is Director of special projects at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts. 

​Hear More: Dr. Gallo is the first featured speaker in the Linda Hall Library's "To Boldly Go" Spring Lecture Series. He speaks tonight, March 19 at 7pm. The event is free, but reservations are required. For more information, go to lindahall.org

Video: Watch Dr. David Gallo's 2012 Ted-Ed talk about  deep ocean mysteries and wonders.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
