  1. Here is an image of the Velella velella, commonly called the By-the-Wind-Sailor. It is a colonial organism (you are looking at a group of individuals). It is a cnidarian (like jellies and anemones). It has no means of movement and is at the mercy of the winds (the stiff sail catches the breezes) and currents. They have stinging tentacles like other jellies.

About me

I met the discoverer of Pluto. I have looked into a nuclear reactor and saw Cherenkov radiation. I did field work in shark-infested waters. I have an Erdos number of 5. I have launched satellites. You could say I like science.
