Flat Stanley on the catwalk

Wow! Look where I am now. This is the catwalk and this long tube holds the core which has made it all the way up from the bottom of the ocean. Those are the technicians way down at the other end of the core. You can see them measuring the core to see how much rock and sediment we’ve recovered. Do you know the difference between rocks and sediments?

Hey, Flat Stanley, come and take a look. We’ve drilled a great core. There’s 8.7 meters of rock here and the drill advanced 9.6 meters into the seafloor. That’s over 90% recovery!
