Protist in Space!

I wonder how they made a space helmet this small...


This little guy happened earlier today. It was inspired by a conversation on twitter with @PsiWaveFunction who I had the pleasure of meeting last week at Science Online. The few of you who have seen it before will recognize my Earth painting in this protisty mashup.

I'm beginning to notice a pattern of sending little critters into space. Maybe I should continue with this apparent trend. Any suggestions for the next critter I should send to space?

Science Online Day 0 Quick Comic




Still working on posting my science scribe notes from Science Online 2012. In the meantime, here's the first of a series of quick comic sketches from my experience! Doing these while I recover from the nerdobacter plague. This one is Day 0 (aka Wednesday night), in which I start off incredibly nervous, but quickly realize I'm with kindred spirits.

Edit: This day features @DrBondar, @_ColinS_, @Szvan, @BenZvan, and hugs from @BoraZ.

Next: Day 1
