Sibling Ships

The research vessel Oceanus was greeted by its little sibling, Asterias, near Woods Hole. After its arrival in Woods Hole in November 1975, Oceanus proved to be a workhorse, with some people referring to it as "the little ship that could." Over 35 years, Oceanus has conducted nearly 500 missions, spanning all fields of oceanography and covering hundreds of thousands of miles from Georges Bank to the Red Sea and south to the Sargasso Sea and the Angola Basin.
