Thats some deal. $44,000 for a two week trip and you cant even keep any of
the meteorites that you find. Imagine if you found a new lunar after
spending your $44,000 and then having to give it all away without getting so
much as a tax receipt in return. Its not like the meteorites in antarctica
are all that plentiful or easy to find anyway. Last year NASA got 74 pounds
of meteorites - working out to a cost to NASA of about $28,000 a pound.
At that cost of finding meteorites, NASA can keep antarctica all to
themselves with my full blessing. And if I want to see a vast white
wasteland of snow I will stay in canada all winter - (not that that sounds
particularly appealing to me).
For $28,000 I can hire desert nomads who will find me a hell of a lot more
meteorites than one measley little pound. As long as NASA stays off my turf,
I will happily stay of theirs.
