Honey, I shrunk the cups!

A few weeks ago, we had the chance to shrink styrofoam cups. Styrofoam cups were decorated and then packed by the laboratory officer (Lisa) and education officer (Juliet) into a mesh bag. The mesh bag of cups are then strung onto the drill pipe going through the moonpool down to the bottom of the seafloor at around 550 mbsl. Here are the results:

So, the original cup is 7.5 cm and now it shrank at least by half. It is a pretty cute souvenir. Imagine if we had deeper waters to shrink our cups! But hey, I will take what we have here. Ciao~
