Engine Room Tour

This morning we took a tour of the engine room and saw the multitude of important machines that keep the ship running. We learned that the ship uses diesel generators to power electric engines. This sacrifices some efficiency but lets us change direction quickly, which we need for scientific research! We also saw some very large ropes and cables.

Green seems to be the color of choice

A really big rope!
