Because the AMSR-E instrument is no longer functioning, NSIDC now relies on DMSP data. The analysis of the last ice-core from Vostok for micro-organisms has shown either nothing (French analysis) or the presence of cat germs (American analysis) ! Rocket propulsion tubes (JATO bottles) had been attached to the side of the aircraft and the carrier was maneuvered for a 35mph run to help get the planes airborne. �From the vibration of the great carrier�, Byrd later wrote, �I knew when the captain had got the ship up to about 30 knots (35 mph... maximum, full emergency speed for such a vessel).
