San Salvador looks forward as much as she looks back. In the years to come, she will serve in scientific and environmental capacities, as a platform for seawater sampling to help map the genetic structure of vast array of microorganisms found in ocean waters. She may also participate in efforts to draw attention to the growing Pacific Gyres (those great concentrations of litter that have accumulated in reaction to the tidal actions). San Salvador would present a visual like no other capable of focusing the world’s attention to these and other matters of societal concern in the twenty-first century. San Salvador will also retrace parts of the routes taken by Cook and Darwin on their eighteenth century investigations that paved the way for the world we live in today.
