Totally envy your work in Antarctica!  That's one of the few things left on my bucket list :)

I'm finishing up my PhD in an interdisciplinary program that's basically anthropology of technology - I've been out of the space field for about 8 years, and just got dragged back in. Looks like I'm headed for a postdoc in anthro/policy of space exploration - hoping it comes through!

“I am interested in Astrobiology”. When they hear that phrase, some people look amused, like I was trying to be funny. Others look at me like I’m crazy, a poor misled scientist, interested in a non-existent field and a disturbed mind (soon to use tax dollars for alien research). Sure, astrobiology sounds as far out as E.T., more like…
