    I guess this is the best place for it

    Ice Bridge

    On Nov. 18, IceBridge teams in Punta Arenas, Chile, awaited the arrival of a fuel flow sensor and seals for the DC-8, pushing the next possible science flight to Friday, Nov. 19. Stay tuned for flight status updates through the final week of the campaign.

    Meanwhile, John Sonntag and Jim Yungel (above), of NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, gave a talk on Nov. 17 at the Chilean Antarctic Institute about IceBridge's Airborne Topographic Mapper. About 15-20 people from the Institute and the University of Magellan attended the talk. "We enjoyed the visit and interaction with scientists and students," Yungel wrote.

    On Nov. 15, IceBridge scientists and flight crew talked with Chilean and American reporters about the mission. Read about the event and watch the video here.
