An interview from 63 feet below the sea

Last week I had perhaps the best interview of my time here at Northeastern (it’s a toss up between this and the time I walked out with a bottle of homemade wine). It happened from the comfort of my office, but the person on the other end of the line was 1,500 miles south and 63 feet down: Liz Bentley Magee is the dive instructor at Northeastern’s Marine Science Center and, as of this month, an aquanaut with Fabien Cousteau’s Mission 31. She took some time out of her busy underwater schedule to tell me all about what the team has been up to.

If you have other questions for Liz, leave them in the comments. I’m sure she’ll be happy to answer. I already have another one that I can’t believe I didn’t ask: Why do aquanauts burn calories twice as fast as us terrestrialites?
