Set Adrift - Apr 14 – Friday

Leaving port, was a “fat guy in a little coat” experience. The ship’s crew and engineers are magicians.

The next broadcast is after I wake up today, tonight.

Good morning! Zaoshang Hao! (good morning in Mandarin). I can technically say this for my entire working day except for today when I get up a little early to start tomorrow's work day tonight at 10pm so I can meet with an U.S. school at 11pm.

Amanda: How many times have you sailed on a research vessel?

Evidence is your anchor out at sea!

The potential for new discoveries on JOIDES Resolution is great. Like space, the ocean floor and below are a relatively new frontier.

Student questions! Thanks Mr. Sanderfoot's classes!

This week I had the pleasure of meeting with two of Mr. Sanderfoot's classes from Berlin High School in Berlin Wisconsin. They had a chance to meet with scientists in the labs and have a virtual tour of the JOIDES Resolution at o-dark thirty here in the South China Sea! 

There is a hole in this boat! But we are not sinking?

We all sort of knew that this moon pool existed but there was something very unnerving about watching doors open up in the middle of the boat and looking at the dark ocean waters below. Why were we not sinking?
