Details

Walter Munk, referred to as the “Einstein of the Oceans” by the New York Times, has advocated daring exploration, without fear of failure, throughout his 80 year career. His work on wave predictions in World War II led to the first successful Allied offensive of the war and the victorious landings in Normandy on D-Day.  At age 96, Munk embarked on yet another expedition. The goal is to study the behavior of his namesake, Mobula munkiana (Munk’s Devil Ray), discovered in the early ‘80s by his student, Giuseppe Notarbartolo Di Sciara. Walter has never seen them. A group of scientists accompanied him on the expedition to Cabo Pulmo anticipating the opportunity to study an aggregation of thousands of Mobula Munkiana’s…but they weren’t there! What went wrong?
