The ESCONDIDA expedition embarks OpenRadiation in the Pacific! Follow the adventure!

The navigator and member of the Society of French Explorers (SEF) Olivier MERBAU will embark at the end of October 2020 on board Argo, a 10-meter long sailboat, bound for the Western Pacific at the confines of Oceania as part of the ESCONDIDA expedition.

Within the framework of a partnership with the Institute for Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN), high school students from Cherbourg-en-Cotentin will collect data to assess the radiological status of these faraway regions. They have therefore entrusted an OpenRadiation sensor to the navigator who will accompany him during the crossing.

Experience the adventure live on the expedition's Youtube channel from the end of October 2020!
