What a breath of fresh air this is - this is a perfect example of reporting that captures the spirit of an organization filled with interesting, engaged people doing interesting, cutting-edge research. Most articles gloss over the possibility that science can be FUN and people can have fun doing it. I commend the lab for having some personality and building a community that involves and includes undergrads, manager and the academically-traditional PhDs into a productive learning environment.
Many university projects get a hard time for sucking up resources with little to show - this lab obviously pulls its own weight (and more). And you don't garnering prestigious affiliations like National Geographic without having serious academic credibility. Bravo!
