    I was not intending on posting the same question 3 times. I was just trying to find the correct forum. I do apologize.

    If you asked me those questions an interview, then you would have failed the interview.
    The questions make you look like an ignorant buffoon.


    Unintentional humour is the only redeeming feature of your list:
    5. Do you know what percent of species could be undiscovered and hiding in the depths of the ocean?

    25. Do you believe that ocean exploration would just cost too much when it came to the bottom of it?

    And you used the word 'believe' 19 times in only 30 questions.
    Not exactly scientific.

    1. What got you interested in the field, which is related somewhat to the ocean?

    This question is irrelevant since I do not work in that field and whether I do or not has no objective bearing on a compelling argument for funding. Irrelevant questions from this point forward omitted.

    4. What is it that you enjoy about the vast ocean?

    Depends on the Ocean. I love the Pacific. Not a big fan of the Atlantic.
    The appeal for the Pacific, however, is at the beach not at sea.
    The ocean is still a bit mysterious as well as a bit foreboding.

    5. Do you know what percent of species could be undiscovered and hiding in the depths of the ocean?

    No one knows that.

    6. Approximately, how much of the Earth is covered by water?

    Aproximately 100%. If you mean how much of the Earth is covered in Ocean, then it's about 70%.


    7. Do you believe we should invest more money into exploring the vast ocean rather than space?

    No. I think that ocean exploration needs a bigger budget, though.

    8. Why do you believe ocean exploration has been put on the back burner for so long?

    Because we went to the Moon, baby.

    10. Why do you believe the NOAA’s Office of Exploration and Research received just $23.7 million in 2013, while the NASA’s exploration budget was 3.8 billion?

    Only if you provided citations to support it.

    12. Do you believe we should ignore space all together and stick to what we have here on Earth (Ocean)?

    No.

    13. Do you believe space exploration is a waste of money?

    No.

    14. Do you believe we have only explored less than five percent of ocean?

    Only if you provide citations to support it.

    15. Do you believe more exploration of the ocean could lead to scientific breakthroughs in the medical field, i.e., cure for some type of disease?

    No.

    16. If NOT, what benefits do you think the ocean holds?

    The point of exploring it is to find out. Drumming up support by alluding to mysterious cures for cancer is dishonest.

    17. Do you believe the Ocean is inhabitable?

    No. But all them octopi beg to differ.

    18. Do you believe Space is inhabitable?

    Yes.

    19. Do you believe there are any benefits of space exploration?

    Yes.

    20. If so, what are the some benefits (your opinion)

    The ability to get away from 12 billion fat people.

    21. Do you believe that the ocean and space are similar and that they hold many secrets, or that the ocean is nothing but vast emptiness?

    I believe that both should be explored scientifically.

    22. What do you believe is holding back the funding of ocean exploration (NOAA)?

    Lack of investor interest.

    23. Do you believe we have found everything we need to in regards to ocean exploration?

    I do not think we ever will find everything that we need to. I do think, however, that we can learn a great deal about a subject.

    24. Do you believe there has been enough “space discoveries” to validate why they have invested more time into that oppose to ocean exploration?

    Why is it a competition between space and ocean? Let's put it differently: "Do you believe we have reaped enough benefits for providing funding for Welfare instead of exploring nautilus habitats and breeding behaviors?

    25. Do you believe that ocean exploration would just cost too much (creating new technologies) when it came to the bottom of it?

    Came to the bottom of the ocean? Guess it depends on whether or not what happens in Atlantis stays in Atlantis.

    26. Do you believe that pollution has ruined any chances of us ever getting the full benefits of ocean exploration?

    No.

    27. Do you believe ocean exploration could give us a better insight on phenomena’s like earthquakes and global warming (if you believe in that theory)?

    Perhaps.

    28. What do you think we could do to start funding more money into ocean exploration?

    Limit population growth; capture investor interest; promote Sushi

    29. Should there be more concern on the vast amounts of ocean we have not explored?

    I think so.

    30. Last question, do you see a BIG and heavily funded expedition of the ocean in our near future?

    No.

    Why? Space is clearly inhabitable and the ocean clearly is inhospitable to all life. It's a powerful wet place.
