Polar Mail from the Oden

Letters: August 7

Email comment:
To all aboard the ODEN, congratulations on a safe and fascinating mission.

I am sure I speak for thousands of scientists around the globe in expressing appreciation for your timely, informative and entertaining updates. They have been especially refreshing to this geologist who spends his time nestled between Death Valley National Monument (California, USA; 112-118 degrees Fahrenheit) and the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Repository Project (Nevada, USA; a nippy 104 degrees Fahrenheit today ! HA!).

Best Wishes and Success to you all !!
