Atlantis returns

Welcome Home Atlantis

Nathan (left) and Patrick McGuire, sons of WHOI associate scientist Jeff McGuire, welcome R/V Atlantis home to Woods Hole with the Lego models of the ship they made this summer. Both models include miniature replicas of the deep submergence vehicle Alvin. Atlantis returned on Sept. 6 after more than four years away. During that time, it sailed more than 104,000 miles and conducted 60 science expeditions, and Alvin made 475 dives. Also view video and a slideshow of Atlantis' return.
