After 14 days of travel and adventure, we’re happy to say that Beth and Murray have touched ground back on the Big Island!
They successfully recovered Europa and all of the valuable scientific data that was collected on the mission. They then cleaned, disassembled, and packed up Europa in her entirety and shipped her home. She is expected to arrive on the Big Island within the next day or two.
For now, we are beginning to analyze the acoustic data. This is a pretty long and tedious task, but extremely valuable and necessary.
We have lots of video and pictures documenting the trip, and will post some of them in later updates.
Until then, check it out…we made the Marshall Islands newspaper!
