Colorado impact of shutdown: University of Colorado may not send research team to Antarctica

BOULDER, Colo. - University of Colorado scientists worry the government shutdown may freeze their scheduled research in Antarctica.

The National Science Foundation runs three stations on the frozen continent. The Boulder Daily Camera reports the foundation has suspended essential research there because it will run out of money for the stations on Monday.

CU researchers are waiting to see if they'll deploy to Antarctica for summer there, which runs from October to January.
