Caption: Engineering Assistant Andy Girard (tan pants) and workers lay out a 1-mile (1.5-kilometer) electro-optical cable in Panama, for deployment at an underwater observatory off Pacora Island. Data from the observatory, which connects to the Internet and the Liquid Jungle Laboratory, will help scientists understand mechanisms controlling greenhouse gases and nutrient cycling in the tropics.
