[13-Aug-18] While this setup may look like a tent, it is not for camping. Before heading to the ocean twilight zone, National Science Foundation and NASA EXPORTS cruise scientists built an enclosed, air-tight "bubble" in which to work. The room is filled with air from a clean lab aboard ship. This safe, clean area will help to protect samples from contamination while the most sensitive measurements are being made.
