The Northernmost Tribute to Michael Jackson

I have never spent extended time working in a remote location (unless you count my home in Portland, Maine), but it has always been a fantasy of mine. I think a summer in McMurdo would suit me just fine, as long as I had some music.

Which is pretty much a non sequitur, but I’ll leave it in. This video featuring scientist-dancers from the Toolik Field Station on the North Slope of Alaska performing Michael Jackson’s Thriller brought a huge smile to my face. Note the nearly ubiquitous bug nets (which I suspect were functional and not merely decorative) and the pervasive lab gloves worn on one hand. Turn up the volume and run it full-screen.

  1. Nice blog at blogs.sciencemag.org. Michael Jackson was a great pop star. I just read that the Texas Medical Board has restricted the doctor charged in Michael Jackson’s death from administering the drug authorities say was responsible for killing the pop star.
