We have now shipped everything down to South Africa where it will catch the boat to Antarctica! It's starting to hit home that the campaign is really not that far away.
Remember that during the campaign we will be live tweeting when the payloads are launched, cutdown, and if there are any interesting tidbits in-between. Longer posts will also be available on the blog like we had last year. If you are a researcher interested in working with us please contact either myself of Robyn Millan and we'll get you in touch with the right people and the right data!
As the cargo gets down to South Africa and the team starts their journey to the ice we'll make sure to have updates and photos to share. I have butterflies in my stomach with all the excitement! This should be an amazing year, not only do we have the Van Allen Probes, Themis, and Cluster like we did last year, but REPTILE is still active, Firebird will have just launched, and we're hoping to have more involvement with the ground based instrument teams! I can't wait to see what we're going to find!
