UA researcher to travel to Antartica on meteorite hunt
UA lunar and planetary laboratory research specialist Jani Radebaugh will travel to Antarctica as part of the Antarctic Search for Meteorites program.
Radebaugh and 14 others plan to collect pieces of meteorites, which include pieces from the moon and Mars. Radebaugh will be stationed for five weeks during the Antarctic summer, which has temperatures of minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
The program's Web site says Antarctica is a hot spot for finding meteorites because they are easy to spot in the plain ice background.
