Antarctic meteorite search plans

We have previously posted about the upcoming UK Antarctic meteorite search expedition that is being led through a collaboration with researchers from the University of Manchester supported by the Leverhulme Trust and the British Antarctic Survey.

They are now posting updates to the project at and you can follow their fieldwork progress via the blog from mid-December onwards when the team head down to the ice to start the hunt for meteorites and to test their field equipment.
