Paleontologist Pete Makovicky shows what it’s like to land on an ice runway in the Central Transantarctic Mountains and gives a quick tour of the team’s remote science station where they’ll be tent camping near Beardmore Glacier. This is the sixth in a series of video reports documenting the team’s daily life and fieldwork during their expedition to Antarctica.
Feel free to post any questions you might have through February 4th. The top-five FAQs will be answered by Pete and Nate in their written dispatches! To receive these dispatches via email, sign-up today at fieldmuseum.org/expeditions
