If you read my comment two shifts ago, you may recall the little experiment we did. This week we will be trying once again to explode a watermelon with rubber bands! We have more uniform-sized rubber bands and we are going to try and keep them in a narrower band around the watermelon. Don’t worry though, we don’t waste the watermelon, we eat it, and this time we will be saving the seeds to have a seed spitting contest. Look forward to Caleb’s comment in the next few days for a synopsis of our second watermelon adventure!

Observer Footnote The Mount Washington Observatory will be hosting the sixth annual Science in the Mountains lecture series this summer! This free, informative lecture series is open to the public. The next presentation, Weather Through the Lens, will be July 23rd! We hope to see you there!
