One of the perks of being a AAAS Fellow is that one gets invitations to do some unusual and interesting things. One such invitation was to tour the USNS Comfort, the floating hospital of the Navy. This came in by way of AAAS S&T Fellow (2010-2011) Sammantha Finstad, whose cousin, Josh, is Merchant Marine and crewman on the Comfort.
My thanks to Josh, who took us all over the ship, from the bridge to the operating rooms to the engine room. Dave Litwack (another AAAS Fellow) posted additional photos on Picasa.
