Reflections of Climbers on Research


Research is continuing on the Everest climb. Yes, the Mayo team is back in Minnesota, but now the data crunching begins as equipment is being retrieved via one shipping outlet  or another on its way back from Nepal. At least two manuscripts will be started almost immediately. Back on Everest, the climbers have a two-week window to attempt a summit before the weather changes. They continue to wear the monitoring systems and data is being recorded and stored for shipment back to the U.S.

Before departing base camp, Joel Streed recorded the reflections of three of the climbers -- Hilaree O' Neill, Emily Harrington, and Sam Elias -- on what it's like to be the focus of science.
