Everyone on board, 67 persons, gathered on the bridge to celebrate when the GPS came closer and closer to the latitude 90°N. Oden was smoothly parked alongside the ice and we could step out on the North Pole. After the mandatory group photo the researchers started working and we got both a piston core and CTD water from 4,200 m depth. Additionally we did an ice station plus all the continuous ongoing measurements onboard.
