I got an invite to lunch with him beforehand as my supervisor had arranged his visit in conjunction with Dr Susanne Schwenzer of the Open University. I was excited to hear about his wide range of experiences, including ANSMET (the Antarctic Search for Meteorites expedition), D-RATS (Desert Research and Technology Studies), NEEMO, and his postdoc work on meteorites.
