About Book

Frozen in Time: Hunting Meteorites in Antarctica for Signs of Life is the coming of age story of now world-renowned astrobiologist Dr. Daniel "Danny" Glavin who spent six weeks as a meteorite hunter in Antarctica as a member of the 2002-2003 Antarctic Search for Meteorites Team. The twelve-member ANSMET team recovered near record numbers of meteorites during their season.

While risking his life to survive the extreme, isolated and relentless Antarctic environment on a daily basis, doggedly searching for meteorites, Glavin also battled his own inner demons and searched his soul. He discovered himself and, in a surprising twist, what he truly wanted to do with his life. 

The authors make the science come alive in an easily understandable and enjoyable way. The meteorites themselves as well as the science become likeable and relatable characters with story arcs through clear, honest and often humorous writing.

Frozen in Time is a modern, true adventure story that hones in on what is most important in surviving not only Antarctica, but life itself.
