Staying Focused Photograph by Tim Samaras
Raindrops pelt a probe lens cover as the tornado heads straight for the crew from less than a mile away. It's an awesome sight that Samaras seldom gets to take in. "I'm busy getting the probes in place, keeping my team out of trouble, and trying to locate a safe route out of there," he says. "I don't have time to take it all in."
