Andrill

it takes a few days to put on to the sea floor and then it takes 8 weeks.
They will drill into colder rocks to see what g.w has happened over the years.
Drill goes up about 8 meters high and the rods 6 meters long.
A night shift takes 12 hours and work from 8am-8pm or 8pm-8am.
The drill whieghs about 40 tons.
Theyʻve got 90 tons of gear.
One shift will cook for about 20 minutes.
The temperature was -24 we thought it was going to be -15, the snow in a storm was blowing 60k an hour.
Itʻs really hard wearing thermal work gear.
They had TV 3 down there
filming.
There will be articles and photos in the press.
Some of the people have worked in Australia.
Some people who went down there have never been there before were experienced.
They never shut down the equipment.
They drill 6 meters at a time.
