Astronaut Meets Argonauts

Up and down, East and West, and inner and outer space all met at WHOI May 6, 2013, when Japanese astronaut Akihiko Hoshide (left, in dark jacket) visited Woods Hole to give presentations to WHOI scientists and to a local high school. Hoshide, who returned from a 127-day mission aboard the International Space Station in November 2012, stopped in the high bay where he engaged in lively discussions with pilots and engineers in the final stages of reassembling the Alvin submarine for missions to the bottom of the ocean.
