POLAR-PALOOZA PodCast - The Antarctic Search for Meteorites
(Click the RETURN Button to Return to Media Palooza)
Out on the "blue ice" in some of the most extreme conditions on the entire Continent, a small team of hardy researchers search for chunks of the Moon, Mars and asteroid belt, fallen to Earth as meteorites. Go behind the scenes and see, in intimate detail, how they keep warm, what they eat and wear, and how they find rocks from outer space - and hear from team leader, Ralph Harvey, why they risk life and limb in ANSMET, the Antarctic Search for Meteorites, an ongoing project supported by both NSF and NASA.
