We finished our first site with success! We're now at our second site, so here's a little summary of what we did at Site U1480. We met our primary science goal at the site: core the entire sedimentary sequence from seafloor down to the oceanic crust that forms the basement that the sediments rest on. That's almost 1.4 km (0.8 mi)!
