Event date: 1st August 2023 at: 7.30pm via zoom

Speaker: Zoe Gathercole

The Mary Celeste is now a modern reality! The Mayflower Autonomous Ship is a first-of-its-kind autonomous ship. On its inaugural journey, the ship commemorated the original Mayflower by following its transatlantic route, gathered critical ocean data, with not a single person on board, gathering data that could help understand the impact of climate change and pollution.
