Thanks for the mention Wallops Flight Facility!

Today while surfing the web I found that we were mentioned by Wallops Flight Facility! They have a great article on NASA's long duration balloon missions and at the end kindly include us! It's a great article and shows just a smidgen of all the different types of research done in Antarctica.

It's a great article on three really interesting areas of science; Super-TIGER which looks for really heavy elements hitting our atmosphere from somewhere in our own galaxy, Blast which is a telescope looking at the effect of magnetic fields on dust particles in our galaxy, and finally EBEX looking at the cosmic microwave background noise. 

Good luck to all three missions! I hope you have a successful season!
