Much about eels is not well understood by scientists. When artist and naturalist James Prosek came to talk on Living Lab Radio back in June, he shared some thoughts about these mysterious creatures. Here's a one minute movie combining audio clips from Prosek's interview, his artwork, and a local eel.

More short movies inspired by Living Lab Radio programs are coming soon.

While aboard the Charles W. Morgan, Heather Goldstone caught a whiff of olden times: the odor of whale that is STILL  detectable in an original oak barrel. The barrel is part of the whale ship's try works, where blubber was rendered into oil. Here's a clip of her conversation with Dave Wiley, Research Coordinator for Stellwagen National Marine Sanctuary, about the scent.

Alvin the submarine, now 50 years old, underwent a thorough overhaul and upgrade last May: the iconic sub was redesigned and rebuilt, piece by piece, by a one-of-a-kind team of engineers, technicians, and pilots at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. WCAI's Jenny Junker and Samantha Broun of Atlantic Public Media paid a visit to the Hi Bay to see the work happening.

If you go outside to look at the sky at night (maybe Living Lab's program on Astronomy inspired you), what can you expect you find? Jenny Junker asked Dennis Schmidt for some basic pointers. Dennis is a "naked eye" astronomer who enjoys observing the heavens from the Buzzards Bay vantage point on our whirling sphere.
