GO-SHIP P02: Room 29 Explorers
Float No. 9, adopted by K-6 students of James K. Polk Elementary School in Fresno, CA
29 May 2022
Two weeks to the end of the cruise, today (May 29th) we deployed our 9th GO-BGC float near the International Date Line. Tomorrow, after we cross the date line, we will be back to today! (Two May 29ths in a row)! Now let’s go back to float No. 9, Room 29 Explorers, which was adopted by K-6 students of James K. Polk Elementary School in Fresno, CA, and decorated by our science and crew parties. Room 29 Explorers was deployed in the evening by CTD watchstander Vic Dina and ResTech Josh Manger after Vic carefully cleaned the sensors. How many times will Room 29 Explorers pass across the date line? Take a guess.
