The Antarctic Sun is produced by ASC for the U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP).

Mike Lucibella serves as the editor of The Antarctic Sun. Before joining the United States Antarctic Program, he spent six years as a science writer in Washington D.C. for one of the top physics societies in the country. He’s chased down science stories across the country, from Brookhaven National Laboratory to Comic-Con International and the abandoned remains of the Superconducting Supercollider. He has a master’s degree in digital journalism from American University. While an undergraduate, also at American University, he interned as a legislative correspondent for an online congressional newswire. When he’s not writing about cutting-edge science, you can probably find him hiking or biking along one of the many mountain trails near his new hometown of Denver, Colo.
