Hacky Sack Attack

How do researchers pass the time, relieve some mounting tension, and try to keep warm while waiting for their robotic vehicles and instruments to come home? "It happens at least once on every polar cruise," said photographer Chris Linder. "Someone brings out a hacky sack." It’s a more interesting game when swaddled in extreme-weather survival suits or bulky winter clothes.
