To Antarctica... and beyond!

Dan Satterfield, a meteorologist with WHNT-TV in Huntsville, Alabama, is the lucky fellow getting to spend some quality time on the bottom of the world. He's there on an expedition along with outreach scientist Ann Posegate from Earth Gauge. Both are blogging about their experiences and what they find.

During my undergraduate days at NC State, I had the opportunity to hear — twice — Dr. Al Riordan talk about the year he spent at McMurdo Research Station on Antarctica.  To this day, it's one of the most interesting presentations I've ever seen, much like the stories of the wild west must have been to folks here on the east coast a hundred-plus years ago.

Well, a colleague of ours is getting to live out that experience, albeit for a much shorter time than a year.  (I'm pretty sure Greg is so jealous he can hardly stand it.)
