Evolving into a Village13 September 2018 | Helen Czerski
Life on Oden has taken a different turn in the past ten days, and it seems to be a very natural evolutionary step from where we were at the halfway point. The ship has a completely different feel about it, and I didn’t really see it coming at all. We are evolving into a village.
A surprising amount of life28 August 2018 | Åsa Lindgren

First measurement station in the marginal ice zone4 August 2018 | Michael Lawler
About a day and a half after beginning the journey, Oden reached the marginal ice zone, where ice begins to appear on the ocean surface. The first measurement station was here. This station will serve as a point of reference to compare with the findings near the pole.
