Argo float was deployed

It has been 5 days since we departed Shimizu port. However, even now I, who have joined the cruise for the first time, am still suffering from sea-sick. I wonder why other guys look like being okay.

Yesterday, we deployed an Argo float, which measures ocean temperature/salinity profiles during ascent/descent repeatedly. Those data are sent to the land office via satellite. I heard each float can measure for a couple of years. I felt somehow sad because it will travel alone. I also recognize that even so, it plays a certain role for climate study, as many scientists all over the world use those data. This is what I thought while I watched ship crew working.
