111127 ANSMET 2011 - 2012

Postby David Entwistle » Sun Nov 27, 2011 4:02 pm

Each year a small group of scientists travel to Antarctica to search for meteorites. This season (2011 - 2012) the team will have the following members:

    Ralph Harvey, Case Western Reserve University
    Jim Karner, Case Western Reserve University
    John Schutt, Case Western Reserve University
    Tim Swindle, University of Arizona
    Katie Joy, Lunar and Planetary Institute
    Christian Schrader, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center
    Anne Peslier, NASA Johnson Space Center
    Jesper Holst, University of Copenhagen
    Jake Maul, Carnegie Institution

You can read the background to the expedition here. The schedule indicates that they will fly to McMurdo on the 30th November 2011, although this is very likely to change. You can follow their progress on the expedition blog. We wish them a safe journey and every success in their search.
