  • Résumé

In 1872, HMS Challenger set sail from Portsmouth, England, to map and sample the ocean floor. This marked the birth of modern oceanography. Relying on the official documentation, logs, and journals of the ship's company, this book recounts the tale of a voyage brought to life by 21st-century science. It takes us on an epic journey across time.
