Layna and Jakob from Texas asked:

How cold is it?
The inside of the ship is heated just like your home in the winter.
The outside temperatures vary. During this cruise it’s been as warm as 30 degrees F. It was 18 the other day and today it is 15! Brrrr!!

How big is the lab?
The main lab accommodates 12 groups of scientists with around 3 in each group. It is approximately 30×25 feet. There is also a smaller wet lab and a biochemistry lab.
