Robotic Antarctic Meteorite Search: Antarctica 2000
Carnegie Mellon University's Field Robotics Center is responsible for
sending the NOMAD robotic vehicle into the Antarctic to search for
meteorites. "Nomad uses robotic technologies to search Antarctic
areas, distinguish interesting rock types, and provide autonomous
assessment of the terrestrial or extraterrestrial origin of each
rock." During the month of January, the robot found four meteorites.
The site contains updates, photos of NOMAD and the meteorites, a
technology section (which currently holds no information), a link to
the Field Robotics Center's NOMAD Page, and perhaps of most interest
to researchers, a technical publications section. [KR]
