Before the summer heat retreats, the Tech Up teams enjoys a little fun in the sun aboard the latest ships sailing the Russian waterways. But it's not just maxing and relaxing. There is serious scientific work to be done as a major research vessel prepares to set sail for the Antarctic. The Akademik Tryoshnikov gets fitted with the most high-tech navigation and experimental equipment from industry leaders like Transas. And a new floating abode will allow vacationers to take a break from city life atop the docile waves of Russia's rivers.
