Some of you may recall that Martin from my group participated in the Indigo V expedition organized by Federico Lauro, where an 18 metre yacht sailed across the Indian Ocean to collect seawater samples for microbiological investigation. Some previous blog posts about the expedition-

The Indigo V expedition- a prototype for citizen oceanography
The Indigo team made a video of their endeavours (see below). And the video has been selected as a finalist in the American Society for Microbiology Global Video Challenge. Yay! In addition prizes for 1st/2nd/3rd, there is also a People's Choice Award, so I encourage you to vote for the Indigo V video at this link.
Good luck Federico and colleagues!
