Another Successful Season in AntarcticaDr Marwan Katurji and Assoc. Prof. Peyman Zawar-Reza had another successful season flying drones and conducting other metrological experiments in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica. National Geographic journalists joined them in the field again this year to document the science. The flying went extremely well with no issues with the new My Twin Dream drone built by technician Paul Bealing (yellow/white drone).
