      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]
