We all know that pollution is an issue in today's world, so a man by the name of Boyan Slat has created a system that could potentially clean up the ocean's pollution!

It is a floating boom system that sits in the shape of a U and will float along the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (which currently sits about halfway between California and Hawaii). Garbage -- 1.8 trillion pieces, to be exact -- gets trapped in this current and up until now, no one has had a viable idea to rid the ocean of the trash!
