Eden and I worked hard on this video project. It's our submission for a contest to design a video game advertisement. Wish us luck! Credit to Alyssa and Cameron, our marvelous actresses.

Did you know that tuna are some of the largest and fastest fish in the ocean? We recently added six to our Open Sea exhibit, including four bluefin and two yellowfin. These are some of the largest tunas we've ever transported! http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/efc/open_sea.aspx

+Matthew Long has it. While both places experience earthquakes related to volcanism, they are caused by different types of volcanism and the tectonic setting in each location is different. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is a spreading center where two plates are being pulled apart, while the Hawaiian hotspot is located within the Pacific plate, well away from any plate boundary. The string of islands and sea mounts off to the west-northwest track the movement of the plate over the stationary hotspot over time. If you are REALLY curious, +Daniel Jones, we can get into the geochemical differences between the two lava types, and then compare them both to continental lava chemistry at some of the southern Cascade volcanoes. =) This is usually the part when everyone runs away in terror...

Who's up for a field trip?

...and yes, +Chris Lake , earthquake insurance is kind of expensive here! But your continent looks fairly stable.

“We’re still trying to get our heads around what this means,” Dr. Raskar said, “because no one has been able to see the world in this way before.”

MIT Media Lab researchers have created a new imaging system that can acquire visual data at a rate of one trillion frames per second. That's fast enough to produce a slow-motion video of light traveling through objects.

Fantastic photo of the Mount St. Helens devastated area nearly 30 years after the 1980 explosive eruption, taken by +Ron Schott. Check out this link for more info on Mount St. Helens, including photos from the more recent eruptive events: http://vulcan.wr.usgs.gov/Volcanoes/MSH/framework.html

In the Blast Zone: Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, August 2009

This is my first gallery on the new GigaPan website. It consists of ten GigaPans I shot in the blast zone north of Mount St. Helens in August 2009.
