- The first is from my former officemate Mitchell Barklage. He is down there working on the GAMSEIS project, which is part of POLENET. His work studying mountains buried beneath the ice is similar to my Antarctic field work back in 2002 supporting the TAMSEIS project.
- The second is Yuki Takahashi. Although we don't know each other personally, we are both ISU alumni, facebook friends, and 2008 NASA astronaut applicants. Yuki is at the South Pole working with the Gravitational Wave Background Telescope to study the cosmic microwave background.
I just wanted to put in a plug for two of my friends who are currently blogging from Antarctica. I spent a month in Antarctica in 2002 and hope to go back someday (pictures here).
