For Science!

Today Julia Mason and I began preliminary tests of capturing coral heads for 3D models.

Palau has an overwhelming amount of coral cover. My head ached after the day was over from my mind being blown each time I entered the water.

 

Internets are very slow here, so I won't be able to produce 3D models for some time. Meanwhile, enjoy some purdy pictures.

Below are pictures of the beautiful jellyfish, Mastigias papua. With their long tentacles, they are the ancestor to the nematocyst-less (and thus stingless) jellyfish of the famous jellyfish lake (Which I will hopefully visit very soon).
