Bruce Strickrott, Alvin pilot and expedition leader for a winter 2007 cruise on the research vessel Atlantis, prepares for the launch of the submersible into the Pacific Ocean near the Juan de Fuca Ridge. Strickrott grew up in Maryland and New York, and earned his sea legs in the U.S. Navy, working with  radar, surface-to-air missile defense, and anti-aircraft support. After six years, he went back to college for a degree in ocean engineering and eventually found his dream job at WHOI in the Alvin group.
