Flights to the Ice

Nov. 8, 2013

I’ve finally arrived! Here’s a video of my flights from the US to Christchurch to McMurdo station, Antarctica. I’ll be here in McMurdo for about a week to get our gear in order, then hopefully next week I’ll hitch a helicopter ride out to the Dry Valleys to get started on my research this season.
