Scientists Working in Isolation for 8 Months Just Found Out About the Pandemic
A group of scientists who were isolated for eight months on a remote island with no TV, cell service and limited access to the internet have returned home to a raging pandemic. In February, the four researchers left for Kure Atoll, a tiny dot in the Pacific Ocean, 1,300 miles from Honolulu. The scientists are now adjusting from going to an isolated island to a pandemic-stricken world. From living in one of the safest bubbles on earth to an out of control pandemic, life has been a big adjustment.
