Robotic Antarctic Meteorite Search: Antarctica 2000

Carnegie Mellon University's Field Robotics Center is responsible for sending the NOMAD robotic vehicle into the Antarctic to search for meteorites. "Nomad uses robotic technologies to search Antarctic areas, distinguish interesting rock types, and provide autonomous assessment of the terrestrial or extraterrestrial origin of each rock." During the month of January, the robot found four meteorites. The site contains updates, photos of NOMAD and the meteorites, a technology section (which currently holds no information), a link to the Field Robotics Center's NOMAD Page, and perhaps of most interest to researchers, a technical publications section.
