Discovering something no one else knows; living in New York City; science

What’s it like to be out at sea for two months?
It's a lot like summer camp for adults. The food is so-so, the people you
bunk with might be smelly, but there are lots of interesting things
happening onship -- like new cores coming up and new data to look at. Also,
we watch movies, have parties, and see a lot of dolphins (and sometimes
whales). Also, the sunsets are nice.
