Request2021 Podcast Ep.45
FINAL EPISODE 45 – Project Legacy
Episode 45 – the very final episode – of the REQUEST2021 Podcast. I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to represent the legacy of the project by including my recent visit to the Downs Primary School. It includes me sharing the story of REQUEST2021 with the year 6 class there as part of their work on Shackleton and Antarctica.

Sam’s 2nd Argo Launch from Bark Europa
Finally got around to editing the video of Sam Payne’s second ARGO deployment from Bark Europa back on 16th January 2022.
There is quite a lot of background wind noise however it serves as a satisfactory record of the event.
You can track the second float here: https://fleetmonitoring.euro-argo.eu/float/6904093
There is also now a fantastic new educational resource available in the form of the Argo Online School: https://www.euro-argo.eu/argo-online-school/intro.html
