Hello Scientopia

Via Bora at Coturnix. Readers here probably followed the ructions on Scienceblogs when their Seed overlords allowed PepsiCo to pay to blog on the network.

Several Scibloggers left and have set up a new blogging home at Scientopia, along with some new blogging talent. Pop over and say hi to the new blogs on the block.

Being involved with the Beagle Project

has led to some strange and wonderful meets and requests. The most recent, which is definitely in the wonderful category, is whether I could find a fragment of James Cook's Whitby-built ship HMS Discovery.

To send into space.

I'm sure the curator of Whitby Museum will greet Monday's request and my explanation with great equanimity.

Or call for the men in white coats to take me away to the local Napoloeon farm for my own safety.
