Teachers Rob Adams and Kathy Griffin and their students at Polytech
High School in Woodside, Delaware, proposed an experiment for
us to try on Alvin. The students asked what would happen
to an egg if it went down with Alvin on one of the dives.
The scientists on board were very interested in this experiment,
and about half the scientists thought it would stay the same,
and the other half thought that the egg would break open. The
egg was taped to the outside of Alvin and sent down.
This is a picture of the egg after the dive, and as you can
see, the egg remained in one piece!
