The crew is growing as we head back to the Gulf on Monday

Well let's welcome more of the "Film Crew" as we head out on phase II of Mike deGruy's "Science of the Spill!" On board we have Mimi deGruy, Co-Producer, Matt Levitz-Editor, Mike Braniger-Sound, Stephen Posner-Grip, Tissa Loehr-PA, R&D Michael Hanrahan all joining in this month as we head back to the Gulf of Mexico.  Seems to me one of the main requirements is that your name is MIKE!!! Pretty funny as we now have 4 out of 7 of us whose name are MIKE or MICHAEL! I'd say it's a good omen...Just ripping seats out of SUV's and stuffing our cars with gear as we start the next 3 1/2 weeks of shooting. Kind a hoping we have our wrap party in KAUAI!! Signing off for now with lots lots more to come from the road!...

WHOI's Ken Kostel and DIVE & DISCOVER Website for our Kids

Ken Kostel
Well I had the honor and pleasure of meeting WHOI's Photographer and editor of their website "DIVE & DISCOVER" Ken Kostel on the December 2010 trip we took on board Atlantis in the Gulf of Mexico.

This site is an incredible resource for classrooms to participate in each expedition made by WHOI vessels such as the Atlantis. Ken's detailed interviews, stories & scientific data are all accompanied with great photos and videos to provide a stimulating multimedia portal into the world of Marine biology.

Be sure to check it out!
