I am an astrobiologist, sci-fi geek, and professor of everything groovy. I write about science, culture, math, history, space, and science fiction. Perhaps like you, I'm seeking a greater understanding of the nature of life and asking myself why all of this really matters. Come with me, and we'll ask some questions together.

Icelandic Volcano Demon? I can handle that.
My office mate, Jennika, is in Iceland for an astrobiology summer school (a trip that I sadly had to turn down due to my research work). I'm sure she's having an amazing time. The program has lots of lectures by leading astrobiologists and several trips around Iceland, to places like glaciers and lava flows. Before Jennika departed, she left a message on her desk that says:
"Nobody steal stuff while I'm gone! I'll send an Icelandic volcano demon after you."
