"Penguin Poop From Space and Other Shenanigans From A Russian Research Vessel," by M. Potter
Even wonder what life is like aboard a rustic Russian research ship in Antarctica? Hear stories about scientific research on the Antarctic peninsula, from studying penguin poop via satellite to kayaking glacial waters to track whales and seals. The work is never ending and never boring during the summer research season on a special research ship designed specifically for Antarctic sea travel.
Currently an engineer at Dell Computers, in 2014 M. Potter took a short sabbatical in order to volunteer with researchers in Antarctica. This also helped fulfill her lifelong goal of reaching all 7 continents before her 30th Birthday.
