Armstrong superstructure

Crowning Achievement

This summer saw a milestone in the construction of WHOI's next research vessel, R/V Neil Armstrong. In July, workers at the Dakota Creek shipyard in Anacortes, Washington, installed the ship's uppermost superstructure, the pilothouse. The ship is scheduled to be completed in 2014 and delivered to Woods Hole in early 2015, when it will replace R/V Knorr one of the ocean science community's preeminent deep-ocean research platforms.
