Data collection = finished

Current Position: 48° N, 129° W

And just like that, we picked up our toys and headed home. These experiments tend to end anticlimactically, especially if they’ve gone well. You steadily work towards each objective, sidestep minor crises, develop some kind of routine, and eventually your time runs out. This is still just the beginning after all, something like step three of the scientific method (I’ve forgotten all the steps as they were taught to me back in middle school). Fittingly, here’s a picture of the SWIFT buoys, the workhorses of this experiment, unceremoniously lying on the floor in the main lab area. Tomorrow we have a full day of transit, and are expecting arrival at the UW dock around 10 am.
