I had never heard of Sylvia Earle, so was glad you presented the bio first. I looked her up right away and appreciated this lecture all the more for it. What an amazing spokesperson for women in science! I loved the footage of her at work throughout her career, and it looks like she plans to continue her work as long as she is able. I'm not sure when this was filmed, but I hope she is still actively working and teaching at 82! You should re-package this lecture as part of a new course: Great Women in Science....
