(two leftmost on lower row) travelled to McMurdo Station, Antarctica as part of the team that integrated, calibrated, tested, and prepared the ANITA-III instrument and payload for flight. The ANITA-III instrument is the third generation in a series of NASA long-duration balloon experiments searching for ultra-high-energy neutrinos and ultra-high-energy cosmic rays. ANITA-III was launched on December 17, 2014 and had a successful 22 day flight.
