Greetings from New Zealand!
I hope you all realize I lost yesterday (November 27) because I crossed the International Dateline. I'm now one day ahead of you!
Check-in at the San Jose Airport on the 26th was uneventful (thank goodness). On my last trip I was searched three separate times. I will tell you more about the flight at a later time.
I want you all to know that I'm now in New Zealand and have just completed checking out all my ECW gear (extremely cold weather gear). The weather is quite beautiful here, and I was able to give a presentation at Hagley Community College. "College" here in New Zealand is like "middle school" back
in San Jose.
The rest of the ANSMET team (Antarctic Search for Meteorites) consists of:
Dr. Ralph Harvey, PI (principal investigator), Case Western Reserve University Dr. Nancy Chabot, Case Western Reserve University
Dr. Matthew Henge, Museum of Natural History in London
Dr. Dave (Duck) Mittlefeldt, Johnson Space Center
Dr. Maggie Taylor, Jet Propulsion Lab
Cari Corrigan, grad student, Case Western Reserve University
They are a wonderful group of scientists to work with! Dr. Harvey has also set-up a website at www.webExpeditions.net/ansmet/
Our Super Shuttle is waiting . . . more later
