Sylvia Earle today on National Public Radio Science Friday

By Shane Graber - Posted Jul 20, 2012 12:00 PM
If you are a Science Friday listener, this show is a must-listen to program as Sylvia Earle will join Ira Flatow from the Aquarius Reef Base in Florida.


Florida's Aquarius Reef Base is the only working undersea lab left today. But now that federal funds have dried up, it may be forced to surface. Oceanographer Sylvia Earle joins Science Friday from inside Aquarius, 60 feet underwater, to talk about sponges, corals and other life she's observed on the reef.

Either tune in to your favorite NPR station or listen to the broadcast online at
