ANSMET Blogs: Return to civilization

Posted by Emily Lakdawalla

There were just a few more entries on the ANSMET website chronicling the wrapup of their successful meteorite-hunting season in Antarctica, so I've bundled those into a last report. They claim they will "try" to do a wrapup from home closing out the season, but I know from my own experience how hard it can be to take time out from all the things you have to do when you return to civilization to take yourself back to the place you just left. So I strongly suspect that this will be the last from the ANSMET team.

I am in the middle of my own return to civilization -- I've now moved house, and nothing important was broken or lost, and my kitchen is unpacked, but I still face weeks of work to settle in. So my posting will be a bit light this week, but I'll try to do something every day.
