43 From Tom, on the last day
recovering Jason at 0100, we steamed back to Guam at ten knots.
Just because we were coming home doesn't mean that we put our feet
up. The main lab was busy going over all of the rock samples that
had just been brought up. Meanwhile in the computer lab, Terra
kept an eye on the sonar array as we continued mapping the seafloor
beneath us all the way into port! At 0900 we arrived at "pilot station,"
just two miles off the coast of Guam. Here we met up with Jim Stith,
the pilot who was our guide into port. We were safely tied up to
the military dock by 1000 and began unloading all of our gear. Our
expedition had come to a successful end.
has been a tremendous experience being a part of a scientific expedition,
and we would like to thank you for being a part of the experience.
We would love to hear from you. If you have any comments or would
simply like to say hi, please email us directly at email@example.com
