Greetings loyal blog followers. It’s been several years since I posted here. I’ve been busy undertaking a PhD and getting prepared for my latest (and most ambitious) field trip – to Antarctica.
I’ve decided to stop using wordpress as the home base for my blog. Instead I’ll be posting current blog entries on my main website which you can view here – Antarctica blog
If you’d like to be made aware of postings when they appear please friend me on Facebook.
Thanks for following along.

And while I’m sharing.
This has to be one of my favorite science stories of the last year!
Watch the video!! ALL the way through! Its the least you can do in respect for that struggle!

Its very rare for me to post something like this. But I don’t want to lose the link. And this story is so intriguing.
Why wouldn’t you expect Astronaut’s eyes to bug out!!! I mean, look out the window!
I’m glad science has proven it by measuring eyeball deflection! What other proof would I need. Sheeeeshhh!
I love the conclusion – “NASA does not currently think that the vision problem will preclude long-duration human space missions,” said Dr. Richard Williams, NASA’s chief health and medical officer. I think a vision problem is the one factor that will preclude human space missions!
