The live feed to Nahant from Fabien Cousteau’s Mis­sion 31 is sched­uled for next Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the North­eastern Uni­ver­sity Marine Sci­ence Center on Nahant Road as part of the Summer Cinema by the Sea series. Pre­vious announce­ments had it sched­uled on a dif­ferent day. A number of fac­ulty and stu­dents from the center will par­tic­i­pate in the mis­sion, a month­long under­water expe­di­tion that pays tribute to a sim­ilar mis­sion by Cousteau’s famed grand­fa­ther, Jacques-​​Yves Cousteau, 50 years ago. North­eastern pro­fes­sors Brian Hel­muth and Mark Pat­terson are sci­ence advisers, and the center’s ocean genome legacy director, Dan Distel, and assis­tant pro­fessor Loretta Fer­nandez are also involved in mis­sion research. The center’s Three Seas Pro­gram coor­di­nator and dive safety officer, Liz Bentley Magee, will spend two weeks in the under­water habitat. Also par­tic­i­pating in under­water and/​or top­side sup­port are grad­uate stu­dents Allison Matzelle, Nick Colvard, Amanda Dwyer, Jes­sica Torossian, and Chris Marks; under­grad­uate Felicia Aronson; and research tech­ni­cians Francis Choi and Sara Williams. Bentley Magee will both blog and tweet on the mis­sion, which is on Face­book and Insta­gram. There are also four sched­uled mission-​​to-​​land talks at the Museum of Sci­ence in Cam­bridge, on June 22, June 26, June 28, and June 29.
