Groundbreaking map of the ocean floor created by technician Marie Tharp and Professor Bruce Heezen, image via The Earth Institute, Columbia University.   Together, Marie and Bruce rewrote 20th century geophysics by creating the first systematic, comprehensive map of the entire ocean floor.  This paved the way for general acceptance of the theories of continental drift and plate tectonics.  The New York Times described Marie’s work as follows:    One day in 1952, Heezen gave Tharp a stack of…
