Mensagem:  They can be similar, as vezes.

"Exploit" is to take advantage, to use an opportunity for gain.

"Explore" is more general - to wander, to get to know.

First came the "explorers" to the New World, they reported their findings back home - then came the settlers, who "exploited" the New World.
