Happy Spring, Geologists Day, and Yuri’s Day.

I hope you are enjoying the spring.  Apologies for the lack of blog activity.  Geophysics is on fire!

This has been an extra activity overload for me lately.  7-day work weeks are the  new normal now.

However, in goofing off, I found this original dedication of Geologist’s Day on the internets.  This was probably the best cultural thing that happened on Earth during March 31st, 1966.

If you are looking at that thinking; there cannot possibly be anything cooler…..wait, check out this stamp from the USSR.

Oh yeah, active and passive geophysical methods, airborne and ground acquisitions systems, start the t-shirt presses.  This stamp has them all.

You must be thinking; there cannot possibly be anything cooler…..wait, how about a 1964 ballet called “The Geologists”.   Yes, Nikolai Karentnikov wrote a ballet called “The Geologists”, possibly the GREATEST BALLET EVER WRITTEN, (given no one has written a ballet titled “The Geophysicists”).  Check the link to wiki for details.  I have never found a sound track from this ballet.

There you have it, Geologist’s Day original announcement, a ballet sound track to search the internets for,  and possibly the coolest stamp ever made.  Truly we live in the best of all times in the best of all possible worlds.

Happy April!
