Whoa!!! I can see why you love your job--science is so cool. I dig it a lot. I'm not good with the equations and math but I love the overarching general concepts. One of my newest obsessions is the science channel.And I love the water animals you saw. Especially sea turtles like the one in that fabulous picture. I'll have to show it to my wife who's favorite animal is the sea turtle.
Glad you like it. I've always been a science nut, but hated math while going through school. It's funny, now I sometimes tinker with the theoretical mathematics for funsies. I guess I was never good at structured learning :)
