To start a new winter season for 2024, Dr. Chu and I with the other three group members (Shannen, Ari and Gary) met at Houston International Airport and departed United States for New Zealand together.

Chu Lidar Group members: Ari, Yingfei, Shannen, Gary, Dr. Chu (from left to right).

This will be the first time for Shannen, Ari and Gary to reach the Southern Hemisphere, which makes them very excited. This trip will also be the third time for me and nearly 20th time for Dr. Chu to get to Antarctica through New Zealand.

Hopefully, everything can be accomplished if the Lidar Group stays together! With everyone’s help and support, I believe Shannen and I will have a very successful winter season for 2024.
