Given unlimited time, anything can happen. More than 80 species identified on rafting pumice from a 2006 Tonga eruption...5000 km away from the point of origin.

The Department of Geophysical Sciences here at UChicago has a Movember team. We aim to raise attention to men's health issues (dudes, go to the doctor every so often) and raise funding for prostate and testicular cancer research!

Help support our cause by donating or simply spreading the word. If you have available real estate on your upper lip, consider renting it out for the month with a stache!

Tomorrow's solar eclipse. Watch out for it, western half of the US.

Those of you on the east coast are out of luck, but those of us in the plains states might at least get a hint of the partial eclipse around sunset.
