How I imagine Peter's reaction after he got crystal globe:
Peter:*takes all the prizes, medals and globes* Peter:*comes home* Peter:*doesn’t really show any emotions* Peter:*go to his room* Peter:*grab pillow,put his face in it* Peter:*starts screaming, because of all happiness,relaxations…* Peter:*when he is done, he gets up and continue like nothing happened*
From 2009 to 2013, the research schooner Tara traversed the globe, carrying a multinational team of scientists. They surveyed the critical foundation of the marine food chain (a foundation we know dangerously little about): plankton, bacteria, protists, viruses and small animals. All in all, they found more 35,000 different kinds of organisms — many of them previously unknown to science. Read all about it!
