The JOIDES Resolution is Moving Again

JR here! We have begun to move again. The seas look great, the sky is clear, and the wind is blowing! It will take us about 2 days to get to our next location and then we will stop and drill again. This will be done many times during the next 5 weeks.

We also had a birthday celebration last evening for one of the scientists on board. He is a petrologist, someone who studies how rocks form. The cake tasted great; too bad you didn’t stop by to have some.
