An interview from 63 feet below the sea

Last week I had per­haps the best inter­view of my time here at North­eastern (it’s a toss up between this and the time I walked out with a bottle of home­made wine). It hap­pened from the com­fort of my office, but the person on the other end of the line was 1,500 miles south and 63 feet down: Liz Bentley Magee is the dive instructor at Northeastern’s Marine Sci­ence Center and, as of this month, an aqua­naut with Fabien Cousteau’s Mis­sion 31. She took some time out of her busy under­water schedule to tell me all about what the team has been up to.

If you have other ques­tions for Liz, leave them in the com­ments. I’m sure she’ll be happy to answer. I already have another one that I can’t believe I didn’t ask: Why do aqua­nauts burn calo­ries twice as fast as us terrestrialites?
