I recently came across an article in Popular Science about a mobile oceanic lab in the works called the SeaOrbiter. I think it would make a viable aff for next year. First of all, do you guys think it would be feasible, both IRL and/or as a plan, and more importantly do you happen to have any evidence or arguments for or against it?
I've found some interesting literature criticizing the idea of using science for diplomacy as well as some literature criticizing the specific term "science diplomacy" as well as some literature criticizing the concept of diplomacy in general. I've been toying with the idea of trying to produce a full fledged file on this subject, but don't want to waste time researching this if there isn't adequate demand. Please give me your opinions on these questions, and feel free to ask questions or make comments in this thread. Keep in mind that I'm only gauging interest at this stage, there is not yet any completed file. Please keep your answers as accurate as possible. It might be tempting to use this poll in an effort to motivate me to produce the file faster or to lower my prices. But I won't create this file unless I feel that I have adequate time to invest in it and I will be able to make a reasonable amount of money from my efforts, so any manipulations will likely backfire. This isn't a commitment and I urge you not to treat it like one. A rough guess will do. Thanks for your feedback.
