Frozen in Space and Time: Antarctic Meteorites

If you travel the the southernmost point in the world, what would you find? Are there mountains? Is there life? Are there… rocks from space? Constantine Tsang of the Southwest Research Institute tells the story of venturing to the vastness of Antarctica to find what has fallen from the sky. Con is a Senior Research Scientist at the Southwest Research Institute. His main field of research is in planetary atmospheres, of both major planets such as Venus, as well as satellites like Io and our Moon. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
