Crow Emily is featured in this timely article on the important scientific work being done in the Canadian high arctic at Eureka:
For Emily McCullough, a Ph.D student at the University of Western Ontario who is working at the lab, its key benefits include the powerful lessons she’s learned about how to do professional research, from planning a major experiment to anticipating problems like “what happens if the wolves come and chew my cables.”
But it’s also a place where she feels the work she does has an impact on Canada’s relationship to the rest of humanity. “Canada’s got a heck of a lot of the Arctic,” Ms. McCullough says. “It would be really great if we could contribute something to the understanding of it as a whole.”How Canada’s Arctic lab keeps a watchful eye on climate change - The Globe and Mail

NASA has used Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter measurements to help recreate the first Earthrise seen by humans. Interesting to hear the astronauts, Lovell’s amazement versus Ander’s cool.
