The rock and ice mechanics lab at Lamont-Doherty is led by PIs Heather Savage, Christine McCarthy and Ben Holtzman. We are in the process of growing our lab and building our experimental program. Along with a team of postdocs, undergrads, grads, and longtime staff engineer Ted, we are rehabilitating and revamping some of the old equipment and building new rigs for exciting new experiments on both rock and ice. You can follow along with our progress here.

Even though I was not prepared at all for the eclipse, my coworkers did not let me down. Lamont was a flurry of activity on the day of the big eclipse. All gathered conveniently right outside the lab.
All manner of viewing devices were fabricated by my creative co-workers.
The rock mechanics kids even joined in on the fun (though mine grew weary of all the "fun" after about 20 minutes..."mom, this eclipse is BORING").
