First lady of the sea

Atlantis (1931-1964), which was the first Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) research vessel, pulls away from the WHOI dock in 1960. The first ship built specifically for interdisciplinary research in marine biology, marine geology and physical oceanography, Atlantis made 299 cruises over 640,000 miles of ocean during her 35 year career at sea.
