Abstract: A decade ago, seven Russians, five Americans, an Italian and a black cat named Bucks began an expedition across the tundra of far eastern Russia north of the Kamchatka Peninsula on an unpromising search for what many believed to be impossible. The talk will describe what they were looking for, what they actually found, and what has been learned in the decade since.
