Notes from the Field

Heading down the mountain

February 25th, 2010 by Ed Kim

Last night, we took load #1 of equipment down the mountain.  Today was dedicated to packing up & hauling the rest of the equipment down with the snowcat.  A bit of a snowstorm is in the forecast, and we need to get our equipment down before it hits.  Sound familiar?  Friday, a truck will take the radiometer home to NASA Goddard…to be prepared for its next adventure.

Here is a closing photo of a sun pillar we saw a few days ago.

    Wow, what an amazing sun pillar. Thank you so much for sharing. I have been thinking about how great creation is with so many solar systems outside our own Milky Way and just to see the real beauty of life on earth is humbling.


    This makes my day.

    Hey Ed,
    Enjoyed reading the blog and loved the photos–esp. this one! Would like to talk when you get back about using the data you collected at GPM frequencies…Glad the radiometer finally made it out there.
    Nice job!
