Smooth sailing into station 2 for the Atlantis! We have seen some of the calmest seas of the trip, and calm waters means better testing grounds for the scientists. An added bonus, the particle team tells me that we were breathing in the cleanest air they have EVER seen. So, if you want to fill up your lungs, with the good stuff, come on out to the North-Atlantic. I'm surprised the Hollywood Guru's haven't picked up on this one yet.

I love surprises, they give us the opportunity to dive into the unknown with unquenchable curiosity. I have never been at sea, for more than a day, and I certainly have never seen a floating lab at work. The mission is the North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES). This blog is not about the science as much as the people behind it. I will leave the science discoveries to the 32 bright minds onboard. So how does a floating lab work? Let's figure it out together.
