Atlantis II in Tokyo

World Traveler

This 1965 photo shows the stern of R/V Atlantis II, with its name spelled out in the Japanese phonetic alphabet katakana, during a stop by the ship in Tokyo. The research vessel was taking part in WHOI's first round-the-world cruise, a voyage that covered nearly 50,000 miles and lasted more than 11 months. Over the course of its remarkable 33-year career, Atlantis II traveled more than one million miles and visited every one of the world's ocean basins.
