Public invited to interact with ship’s crew

Members of the public are invited to interact with the crew of Exploration Vessel Nautilus at three North Olympic Peninsula Library branches beginning Wednesday.

Participating libraries are Port Angeles, 2210 S. Peabody St., on Wednesday at noon; Forks, 171 S. Forks Ave., on Thursday, at 1 p.m.; and Clallam Bay, 16990 state Highway 112, on Friday at 1 p.m.

Currently, the Nautilus crew are using remotely operated vehicles, or ROVs, to map and explore deep-water habitats and the site of a sunken World War II submarine.

During the event, scientists, engineers and educators onboard Nautilus will be available to communicate virtually — in real-time — with attendees who are curious about the ocean or have questions about current research efforts.

Additionally, a representative from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will use a small pool on-site to demonstrate how ROVs are used aboard the ship.

Her brother, Army Cpl. Marvin D. Actkinson, was declared missing in action in Korea on Dec. 2, 1950 and presumed dead in 1953. He was 18. His remains were returned in 2018 and will be buried in Colorado City, Texas, on Feb. 12. The Thursday ceremony was hosted by the Michael Trebert Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution at the Northwest Veterans Resource Center in Port Angeles. Featheringill was accompanied by her daughter Eilenah Moon. About 70 people attended the ceremony, which honored Actkinson 71 years after his death.
