Who thinks science isn’t awesome?

Just having some frisbee and beers at the foot of an Antarctic glacier, with the ecology research team after a day drilling through snow and ice. 

So remember that photo of a Pingu-looking penguin saying hi to me last week? The photo has gone crazy internet-viral and now you can even own a sweatshirt with him on it. We just have to make sure that little guy gets a kickback, payable in krill!

In all seriousness, I’m very excited to have my penguin feature article run today in Slate about life with the Adelie penguins of Cape Royds - hope you enjoy reading it.
