The traverse left for Lake Willans yesterday afternoon. Here is a link of the traverse guys rolling out.
The WISSARD Traverse began its ~12 day journey to Subglacial Lake Whillans, today December 30th. WISSARDS gathered at the WISSARD test site to wish the traverse team well. The traverse travels an average of 7 miles an hour with 12 tractors towing wissard drill and science equipment. The traverse team hopes to reach the sheer zone, 20 miles from the WISSARD test site, on Day 1
We will be in town building another small hot water drill until January 14th when we fly out to the field site.
Each year McMurdo has an art show in the carpentry shop. This wheel of death was out in front of the entrance for people to get hurt on.
Inside this tent was he video footage of the SCINI robot going downhole in test hole we drilled.
