Scientists have completed the first of five pole-to-pole flights intended to determine how greenhouse gases travel. The Harvard University-led project based in Colorado conducted the three-week $4.5 million mission using a high performance jet this month, and researchers have already reported valuable new findings. Scientists left on January 8, aboard the specially equipped jet, which took air samples while flying from Colorado to the Arctic before heading back down to the Hawaiian Islands...
