A small U.S. Coast Guard boat pulls alongside the Cutter Healy to drop off passengers as the icebreaker makes its way through the Puget Sound on its way, Thursday, Oct. 29, 2015, to its homeport of Seattle. The 420-foot polar icebreaker, the country’s newest high-latitude vessel, returned to Seattle after cutting its way to the North Pole in support of a mission to study the health of the Arctic Ocean. The ship is capable of breaking more than 10 feet of ice. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
