"If you're curious about how an icebreaker tracks and avoids a deadly impact, be sure to check out the
We're in the Strait of Belle Isle after some mechanical delays onboard the ship that held us up for a few hours. Nestled in between Newfoundland and Labrador. Very cool to see ice and imagine what's coming. We've just completed a video blog of a ship tour that should be up soon, and tomorrow I'll write some more about each science discipline that's onboard. Stay tuned!
