Yonder is the sea, great and wide, creeping things innumerable are there, living things both small and great. There go the ships, and Leviathan that you formed to sport in it.

The research vessel Nautilus carries scientists and science educators to study and discover minute elements in the ocean depths and a variety of biological creatures. Recently, while they were measuring methane bubbles with their deep-water robotic vehicle they were visited by a sperm whale. Watching the event was truly a wonderful thing. Listening to scientists who were mostly serious folk turn into bubbles of giggly delight at the sight of the whale was priceless. God tickles us.
