Luckily I got to spend another day in Nahant. Today we had the last meeting with the entire Northeastern science team before some of us head to Florida for training. We spent the bulk of the afternoon going over the science overview for the team, and then hearing stories from Mark Patterson and Brian Helmuth about their past saturation diving experiences in Aquarius. I can't wait for the adventure to begin!
