Short on time today? Welcome to a 12-second blog. Pamelia and I saw the video above yesterday as part of astrophysicist Brian Keating's entertaining and enlightening guest lecture at Dartmouth, which included a description of Brian's work measuring cosmic microwave background radiation from observing stations in Antarctica. More soon on our stellar trip to Hanover and how that led us to John Coltrane, the inside of a 150-year-old observatory, the Appalachian Trail and former New York Mets second baseman Tim Teufel. For now, click on the video and enjoy a little Antarctic slapstick.
