Yesterday's barnacle video was tremendously popular. So much so, that readers in the world of science have been sending me related links ever since I posted the well-endowed arthropod. Having spent time doing research at sea in the Gulf of Maine, this particular one spoke to my own heart. Ever wonder what it's like to be on an oceanographic cruise? Here's invaluable insight from the Coastal Ocean Observing Center at the University of New Hampshire. It captures the fun, serious, and at times frustrating reality of life on a research vessel... all to the sound of Vanilla Ice! And there's some excellent footage of marine critters to boot. Thanks to Philip Hoffman for the submission and special props to Chris Manning for brilliant lyrics. The latter, as it happens, was also involved with my sea cucumber research through the Northeast Consortium. Small world. With that, sit back, relax, and rock out to Manning's 'Cruise, Cruise Baby'. You might even learn a little something about marine science in the process!
