Urge to protect oceans propels youngest aquanaut on Cousteau’s Mission 31
Miami Herald - 06/21/2014
Young is getting a crash course from two experts in the field, Mark Patterson and Brian Helmuth, Northeastern University faculty members who both went on their first saturation dive missions before Young was born.
They “adopted” Young as part of Northeastern’s research and science team, which is conducting five projects during the second half of Mission 31. Florida International University, which now operates Aquarius, conducted its own science and research projects during the first half.
