Why This Moon Pool Is So Important For Scientific Research


What sets the RSV Nuyina apart from typical luxury liners is that it isn’t made for just cruising. It’s designed specifically to pierce thick ice. This icebreaker can wade through tough Antarctic glaciers like it’s gliding in calm waters. The ship’s ability to penetrate ice allows it to explore uncharted territory, making its moon pool handy for investigating the unknown abyss. While the RSV Nuyina’s moon pool might make arctic deep observation look easy, the process wasn’t exactly as convenient in the past.

In 2013, NASA’s WISSARD mission involved sending specialized equipment deep into a subglacial lake for scientific research. A YouTube video of the expedition highlights the tedious process of hauling various equipment over the icy surface before drilling a borehole into the ground in order to insert NASA’s micro-sub. The RSV Nuyina and its moon pool circumvents that dilemma by providing a direct passage, as well as a safe and controlled environment for its equipment to operate in.
