You can navigate through hotspots in the panoramas (see box at right), or you can click the image at left to go to a larger, clickable Ship Diagram.

Or continue your tour by following the arrows by the text under the panoramas.

All the animals studied in the ship's main lab don't just appear there. If you were a member of the science party on this research cruise, you would likely leave the large ship in a small boat and scuba dive to collect sample animals in jars.

In this panorama a diver checks and adjusts his scuba gear on deck, while-- if you turn the panorama to look in the opposite direction-- the small inflatable boat can be seen being held by the crane at the rail while equipment for a collecting dive is loaded into it.
