Launching the Mooring
It's not easy to deploy a 180-meter (590-foot) mooring loaded with expensive equipment. Researchers spend years designing and building instruments, and waiting for funding and looking ships to deploy them, and their future research depends on measurements from the instruments. So tension turns to cheering when a deployment is successful. (Video courtesy of Fiamma Straneo, WHOI.)
