    This may seem inconsequential to the layman, but to scientists around the globe, any paper accepted into the prestigious PLOS Biology is the stuff of legends. For us, is the confirmation of our fellow scientists that our proposed concept to solve the great data bottleneck is a viable solution.

    News of the publication was swift and far-reaching, captivating news outlets all around the world. We had write-ups from NBC, Times Lives (South Africa), Straight Times (Singapore), Globe and Mail (Canada), ABC News (Australia), Bangkok Post and Yahoo News, just to name a few.

    Here is a compelling exerpt from the paper :

    A single oceanographic research vessel can cover a small fraction of the ocean. During a continuous year at sea, without stopping for fuel or crew change, a single research vessel could cover ~3% of ocean-area sampling at a distance of 1 degree, traveling at 10 knots between stations and only stopping at each station for two hours. Despite this being an enormous area, representing 9.7 million km2 (area calculation from the Goode Homolosine projection), it conservatively would cost at least US$15 million for the boat, the crew, the science, and the scientists.

    Twenty vessels would be required to operate at this intensity to cover the mid-latitude region, putting into perspective the costs of conducting oceanography on a global ocean-basin scale. The carbon footprint of this effort would be enormous. The costs would exceed US$300 million dollars, and the results would still exclude the entire high-latitude oceans.

    The response from our fellow cruisers has been fantastic. We have quite a few volunteers lined up to bring aboard our instrumentation early next year. If you know anyone who is interested in participating, please don’t hesitate to JOIN THE ADVENTURE!
