Scientific American online has a special blog called Expeditions that features entries from science-types on their crazy adventures. It's like getting a postcard from your totally cool (and lucky) friend! Recent posts include ICESCAPE scientists scan Arctic seas for melt ponds, "frazil," "grease," and "pancake," by Stanford University master's student, Haley, and 'Science wants this,': a portrait of crew life on an expedition to study Humboldt squid, by University of Chicago undergraduate, Julie. What a neat way to learn more about science and squeeze in some foreign exposure.
