View "Treasures from the Scripps Collection", a series of marine specimens photographed by Affiliated Artist Oriana Poindexter, at three upcoming shows open to the public.
Why did someone collect a small, still-unidentified octopus from Bikini Atoll ten days before the detonation of the first true H-bomb? What can these specimens and their jars tell us about what it was like there, at that time, in that place?
