Laying Cable


Yesterday, I looked out my window* and saw the next part of the MARS project falling into place (previous post 1, previous post 2, BBC story). Currently, the Global Sentinel, a cable laying ship, is anchored offshore as the last bit of cable is being joined to the shore station. This website as an excellent schematic of vessel.

*Literary flourish: Actually postdoctoral fellows at MBARI don’t get windows, those are reserved for lead scientists.

  1. Oh now you gone and made me reminisce about Monterey. I live there for 2 years while attending MPC and volunteered at the aquarium as a penguin caretaker! Those dunes and that non-native iceplant will always stick fondly in my memory.
