Where's my SAG card?

So, I just got back from a trip to Death Valley, complete with canyoneering, hidden petroglyphs, a land-speed record-setting attempt across a playa, and a journey from 200 feet below sea level (sleeping with the fishes) to 11,000 feet above sea level all in one day. While I was off on my vision quest, KQED (the local public television station was on a "quest" of their own.

Their quest, should they choose to accept it, was to film a special about nanotechnology at the University of California Berkeley and the Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. As part of their special, they needed shots of scientists being scientisty. In the clip below you can watch the video featuring the Zettl lab's best and brightest giving one-hundred and ten percent. Look closely and you can spot yours truly opening a furnace.





And yes, those purple gloves were absolutely necessary for the task at hand, I definitely did not put them on just because they look more futuristic.
