Jonathan Eisen and Darlene Cavalier get a nice shout-out in the Sacramento Bee today, for their work gathering microbes for an experiment in space.

The journalist says it was love of science, blah, blah, cliché, blah, that brought them together, when this photo evidence shows IT WAS CLEARLY BLOGGY, the Science 2.0 mascot, that did so.

Science Online 2010.

"Any time I get the opportunity to introduce two smart people, I am going to take it," said Bloggy in an interview. "I'm not all that happy about Prof. Eisen's finger in my prostate in this picture but...SCIENCE!"

Anyway, you're welcome, America!
