Yes, it’s true. There really ARE mad scientists! This group is walking around, doing science (important stuff) on ice floes in the Arctic. On ice. In the Arctic!
They’re mad, I tell you! Mad!
Look at that… bbrrrrrr!
That’s not one mad scientist in a weird, special effect picture. That’s TEN mad scientists, doing mad scientist research on ice floes. A short distance below them? Hundreds, perhaps thousands of feet of (literally) ice cold water!
For all the low-down on this insanity, go to the NASA Blogs page for the Arctic Voyage 2010, here.
