While at sea, Tolland began videotaping some of his adventures for Celia, making minidocumentaries of his work onboard the ship. Promise me you’ll find another love.” “I’ll never want another.” Tolland meant it. Corky stepped over the pylons and joined Tolland at the edge of the shaft. “I can’t be for sure without a microscope,” Tolland said, “but it looks to me like this is a bioluminescent plankton from the phylum Pyrrophyta. The Arctic Ocean is filled with it.” Corky shrugged. ” “Because,” Tolland said, “the meteorite was buried in glacial ice‑fresh water from snowfalls. Rachel stood at the edge of the pool and tried to get her mind around what she was looking at. “Actually,” Corky said, “the ocean is directly underneath us. Because ice is lighter than water, the glacier simply continues to flow, floating out over the ocean like an enormous ice raft. Norah Mangor had been very clear about the integrity of the glacier, having drilled dozens of test cores to confirm its solidity. “I thought the glacier’s perfection was the cornerstone of all the strata‑dating records. “I could swear this bioluminescence is fading.” Rachel looked at the hole. Tolland removed his parka and lay down on the ice next to the hole. ” “Yup.” Tolland crawled on his belly to the edge of the hole. “You may also have noticed that the water level isn’t changing? Tolland stood in silence a long moment, wondering what to do next.
After one trip, he returned with a grainy home video that he’d shot out of the window of a deepwater submersible‑the first footage ever shot of a bizarre chemotropic cuttlefish that nobody even knew existed. Tolland immediately quit his job at Scripps Institute, forgot all about the NBC documentary, and focused all of his energy and love on helping Celia get well. “It’s time to let go.” “I can’t.” Tolland’s eyes welled. “You’ll have to learn.” Celia died on a crystal clear Sunday morning in June. Hardening his resolve, Tolland threw himself back into Amazing Seas. In the four years that followed, Tolland’s show took off. I think he was headed back to go grab a few winks.” Corky squinted across the dusky dome. Even in the dimness, Rachel could see his expression was uncharacteristically grave. Corky’s mood seemed to cool instantly when he looked in the water. Tolland picked up a shard of ice off the glacial floor and tossed it into the water. “Speak for yourself.” Rachel sensed Michael Tolland was in no joking mood. “Monocelled plankton capable of oxidizing a luminescent catalyst called luceferin.” That was English? “Corky, there any chance the meteorite we pulled out of that hole had living organisms on it? The water in that hole is glacial melt and has been frozen for three centuries. This slab of ice is floating.” Rachel stared at the two men, feeling utterly perplexed. Holding one sleeve of the coat over the edge, he let the other sleeve dangle down the shaft until the cuff skimmed the water.
