Just saw this video on youtube and am amazed by it-

I hope you enjoy the video and are amazed by it.  It makes me long for the research I did in graduate school.  I love the spark you get from that first moment of amazement.  I did research on bacteria- specifically pathogenicity and quorum sensing (meaning you get a lot of bacteria together and they can help each other do amazing things).  I also got child like excitement learning about the bioluminescence certain bacteria have which helps them survive in a relationship with a squid- the bacteria live in the squid, get fed, are happy, luminescent, and then the squid doesn’t have a shadow so creditors can hunt it as easily.
