The Brisbane Experience

Wikipedia reminds us that science (from Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions based on observations in the natural world, noting that "In modern use, 'science' more often refers to a way of pursuing knowledge, not only the knowledge itself."  Researchers in all disciplines within BEMS understand the importance of documenting results at critical times so that key variables can be discerned.  During the recent annual meeting, BEMS member Rob Kavet of EPRI, who is perhaps best known for his work related to contact currents, captured something the opposite of contact.  Taking his camera to the Wednesday afternoon excursion to the Brisbane Zoo, he recorded this amazing image of a crocodile in action.

Do you have an image or an idea that you'd like other BEMS members to see?  Send it to and it might appear in the next newsletter!
