Updates & Corrections

  • Correction 23 February 2018: An earlier version of this story said that Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands helped to run a radar-mapping programme in Antarctica in the late 1960s. This is incorrect; in fact, it was the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby.
