CRATER RESEARCH BEGINS

After arriving in the crater, Gunther Kletetschka and Dr. Peter Wasilewski took some preliminary fluxgate magnetonometer readings (image of measurement points) and established the teams exact GPS coordinates. You can find the magnetometer data uploads in the 'Science Stuff' area.

Peter Hardy has continued his soil analysis and produced a series of 3 videos to explain the process.

The conditions on the ground are intense - David Beverly reports, "We're all hot, sweaty, dirty and tick infested - we haven't eaten much in two days - and I'm loving every minute of it!" While administering todays webcast David was besieged by a raging swarm of sweat bees and wasps. These pests are a constant and painful presence.
