Science yacht to map climate change

The schooner Tara is to set sail on a three-year, 81,000-nautical mile-scientific voyage on the trail of naturalist Charles Darwin to map the effects of climate change on the marine organisms from which all life evolved. The voyage will take the vessel and crew into all of the world's oceans and from the ice caps to the tropics, following and also expanding on Darwin's 1831-1836 trip on board the Beagle.
