SCUBA and YORP are both acronyms for things close to the heart of our owner/operator, Rob. Scubayorp Outreach is a business extension of his passion.
Rob's interest in SCUBA diving is linked to his first science degree in biology, and connection to the origins of life being in the sea.
Y, O, R and P are the surname initials of four astronomers who first described the effect of sunlight on the orbit of asteroids. Unsurprisingly, it's called the YORP Effect.
These two ideas are represented in Rob's tattoos - Nowak's evolvability equation on his left forearm, and Boltzmann's entropy equation on his right.
A third tattoo on Rob's shoulder, encapsulates his philosophy with a Yin Yang symbol using an ocean motif surrounded by stellar flares.
