Episode 5 People
Science is a process supposed to eliminate all subjectivity so that we can truly understand the nature of the world around us. But science is a process created by people, and carried out by people! How does being at sea for long times affect people emotionally, and how can they overcome this to collaborate to advance science in a truly significant way? Claire speaks to Debbie Thomas, Kevin Grigar, Dan Marone and Ann Dunlea in this final episode of This is Science: Expedition 378.

Episode 2 Asking Questions
Geological time boggles the brain. Millions of years in the past the Earth looked very different than it does today. But the past is in the past, right, why dig it up? Well it might help for the pickle we seem to be getting ourselves in to. We can't run whole Earth climate experiments but we can look back at previous ones to ask questions about what might be to come. Scientists Debbie Thomas and Laura Haynes explain to Claire why Expedition 378 is focusing on the climate during the Paleogene period.

Prologue - The Quest To Touch The Mantle
What is the mantle and why do we want to get our hands on it so badly? On this first episode we talk to chief scientist Henry Dick and staff scientist Peter Blum about the history leading up to expedition 360 and what we might learn from the next two months. Correction: this episode incorrectly states that seismic waves travel faster in denser rocks. The correct relationship is seismic waves travel faster in stiffer (more rigid and incompressible) rocks.
