Want to hear a joke? Two scientists walk into a bar and…end up having great conversation about science and storytelling because the learning never stops - even over a glass of wine. Okay, not a real joke but looks like our Spectrumites are having a great time at @LabxNAS event in DC tonight! #dcnightlab

On this #InternationalWomensDay, we celebrate the work of Dr. Marcia McNutt, a geophysicist and the first woman president of the National Academy of Sciences. 🔬 From 2013 to 2016, she served as editor-in-chief of the Science family of journals. Prior to joining Science, she was director of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from 2009 to 2013. During her tenure, the USGS responded to a number of major disasters, including earthquakes in Haiti, Chile, and Japan, and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. 🌎 McNutt led a team of government scientists and engineers at BP headquarters in Houston who helped contain the oil and cap the well. She directed the flow rate technical group that estimated the rate of oil discharge during the spill’s active phase. For her contributions, she was awarded the U.S. Coast Guard’s Meritorious Service Medal. 🌊 Before joining the USGS, McNutt served as president and chief executive officer of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), in Moss Landing, California. During her time at MBARI, the institution became a leader in developing biological and chemical sensors for remote ocean deployment, installed the first deep-sea cabled observatory in U.S. waters, and advanced the integration of artificial intelligence into autonomous underwater vehicles for complex undersea missions. 📸 Photo courtesy The Royal Society. #cpnas #nasmember #womenshistorymonth #womeninscience #womeninstem

#DuBoisData is on view now! To create this alternative map of the USA, @rlukedubois joined 21 online dating sites, downloaded 19 million profiles, and analyzed the results to identify the most commonly used word in each city and town. Thus, DC becomes “Interesting” and Arlington becomes “Beltway.” Post your city or hometown in the comments and we’ll give you the new name! We’re open until 8:30 tonight for #dcnightlab, a great time to visit (deets via profile link)! Photos 📸: @beingdave. #cpnas
President Calvin Coolidge dedicated the NAS building as “the Temple of Science in America,” saying, “It is not a place of mystery, but one to lead the public in thinking deeply and seeing how research can explain fundamental problems.” See our gorgeous building for yourself Wednesday night at #dcnightlab with @labxnas and @museumhack.
