The header is now more readable.  I am seeing a very wide navigation bar 
below it that seems not to be properly positioned.

Using you science Illustration collection as your front page works OK. 
But I would encourage you to work on a design for a splash page for your 
site that conveys your mission and stills and might include a small 
amount of text.

I would encourage you to make your header/banner equal to the maximum 
width of your site page, in this design.  If you can control the page 
width, I think you could narrow it to the width needed to contain your 
thumbnail previews. That would make a good maximum width for your site page.
