Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://deepseanews.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.

  1. Oh, wait I know…
    You’ve all been hired by the Discovery Institute!!

    That’s what Kevin meant by the dark side?

  2. You’ve studied all there is to study in earth’s ocean, and now you’re off to study the oceans of space?

    I hate to break it to you guys, but the sea of tranquillity is just a name.

  3. Well, rockets shooting towards space is one thing. If we get fireworks exploding and trains going into tunnels as well I might have to rethink my subscription!

    Just saying.

  4. A slow day in the deep, eh? You’ve gone the way of the big news networks – when there’s no news spin any old crap…

    What’s the bet this has all the zing of ‘New Coke’…

  5. Wait, maybe this is a cry for help…
    The gang are stuck, Narced, and only have the small reefpad computer which they tied into the underwater accoustic modem and but can only manage quick one line postings. This is their final plea before they risk it all by rocketing back to the surface….
    Wait were coming… grow gills!
