The Rocket Scientist just texted a picture of him and other scientists in the plane that will take him from Christchurch, New Zealand to McMurdo Station, Antarctica.  They have been prevented from going for days, and yesterday they got an hour out and had to turn back because of engine trouble.  He left on December 29, and will be back in late February, having spent weeks on the Antarctic ice testing drills and drill automation software.

I love the man enough to respect that he needs to do things like this, that he has a unique job that requires him to be away a lot in far off places, but I swear…

Sometimes I wish he were an accountant.
