19 countries involved, 600 scientists, 5 icebreakers (from China, Russia and Sweden)...

Today, German "Polarstern" (IMO 8013132) and Russian "Akademik Fedorov" (IMO 8519837) will set sail in Tromso, Norway, starting the MOSAiC-expedition which is following in the footsteps of Fridtjof Nansen's famous expedition from 1893 to 1896.

Impossible to describe the full extent of the expedition in a few sentences here, see for yourself:

Akademik Fedorov
