    a little insight to my current profession and the cool things I get to see...finally a pic thats already published so I won't get in trouble for posting it

    [​IMG]

    -not the fin, we didn't kill the whale, but we did build the cold room in the background
    pic is from the April 08 National Geographic article on biomimetics

    some other stuff I've been around but can't post pics

    -the Mass state morgue in Boston (100's of bodies)
    -2 proton beams and obviously 2 reactors that power them
    - a robot room that would literally cut you in half if you were to go in at the wrong time
    -a 20'x40'x20' (yes, foot not inch) freezer that contains nothing but 7 ball jar size containers full of stem cells (each jar is worth about 1.5mil)


    some cool shit y0

    environmental rooms

    cold/warm/clean rooms

    the stem cell freezer I was in yesterday was -25.5 degrees Celsius, and thats just ambient temp. Add 8 (4 on each side) 27" 1550rpm fans blowing directly at you and it gets uncomfortable real fast. We had to de-ice one of the coils and the water would re-freeze before it hit the floor (made for an easy clean-up though :) )...I keep a winter jacket, beanie, and mittens with me at all times

    we have units that go down to -100 Celsius
